Brief Answer:
Cyclical hormpnes / exercises/ positivity help.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
You are worried about your mental stress, irregular periods & weight gain after your marriage.
Marriage brings about major change in a girls life from many angles.

Her family, environment, new customs / habits in the in new family definitely give her a sense of fear/ awkwardness.She also starts her sexual life,her routine changes drastically-All of these result in emotional changes. she is nervous/ insecure. This automatically goes as she gets accustomed with the change.

Menstrual irregularity is common in newly married girls. That is due to Psychological stress/nervousness/anxiety/worry directly reflect in hormonal functioning,& change in menstrual pattern.

Hormonal change many a times causes small cysts in ovary-again causing menstrul irregularity.
Changes in eating habits are because of psychological nervousness which results in less eating/ excessive eating. Eating healthy is essential for hormonal normality & so normal menses.
Weight gain or loss is a common finding in newly married girls the cause being new eating habits in family/ psychological stress.

In this light I would advice you-
- to consult a Gynecologist for physical examination, few investigations like CBC/ USG / thyroid test( that you have already done & are normal),
- A hormonal assay/ endometrial biopsy may be needed to decide exact
treatment plan.
- Fasting & post meal blood sugar may be advised in case of family history of diabetes. Insulin resistance test/ USG for PCOD may be advised- in case there is no relief in 3 months of hormonal treatment. Usually specific hormonal treatment for three months & optimum exercises & positive attitude will mostly control your problem. I think that is the way forward and the treatment plan.
