Hello,
Thanks for your query.

Get yourself tested for urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.
Pregnancy can also be confirmed by serial blood levels of beta HCG and transvaginal ultrasound.

Feel free to ask if you have further query. I will be happy to help.

regards,
Dr Nilofer

Hello,
Thanks for your reply,
Missed periods could be due to many reasons like thyroid problem, ovarian cyst, emotional instability, stress, hormonal imbalance , excess weight gain/ loss.
Since you have water retention as well i suggest you to get your thyroid levels tested.

Hello,

Yes both are connected.
It is better if you can get a CT scan of thigh for exact diagnosis.
