Brief Answer:
Upload all test reports.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments:

1) As you have gotten all NEGATIVE tests, then possibility of pregnancy has been ruled out.

2) Beside pregnancy, common reasons of late period in this age group are mental stress, ovarian cyst, thyroid disorder, premature menopause, weight gain, change in diet habit, pelvic or vaginal infection etc.

3) Your doctor has given thyroid medicine. Therefore, hypothyroid state may be the underlying cause.

Can you please upload all the tests reports including ultrasound scan (if done) for better understanding and suggestion?

Waiting for your earliest response.
