Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

I saw the report and there is no abnormality in the thyroid profile of your sister.
The thyroid hormone levels are well within normal range for the age.
It does not imply that she is pregnant and this profile is never used to diagnose pregnancy.
Since pregnancy is associated with altered hormonal levels, appropriate normal range for stage of pregnancy is always mentioned for such levels, be it thyroid or others.
May I know why this test was ordered?
What were the symptoms?

If she has missed a period this March, chance of pregnancy depends on if she had regular periods earlier, if she has any other hormonal cause suspected and many other possibilities.

Please consult the ordering doctor for these possibilities. A pregnancy card test is helpful to diagnose pregnancy early. Please take the opinion of a gynaecology expert for the missed period, if her cycles were usually regular.

From the current information provided, I cannot guess a pregnancy.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Please ask for any clarifications before closing and rating this answer.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck! Thank you!!

Thanks for the update, XXXXXXX

The thyroid profile is normal and pregnancy test is negative.
Missed period is mostly due to irregular cycles.

Increased weight and irregular menses point to some ovarian, uterine or hormonal problem and she should see a good gynecologist and get evaluated.

She may be advised a sonography of the pelvis and some hormone assays on evaluation.

I hope you had an answer to your query.
