Can be due to PCOD.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen all the attached reports and prescriptions. The delay in periods can be due to polycystic ovaries. You need to continue with thyronorm. PCOD is a condition where in numerous small fluid filled cysts will be located along the edge of each ovary, which affects release of Egg (Ovulation) causing difficulty in getting Pregnant.Diagnosis is done by ultrasound , transvaginal , transabdominal or 3D and there should be at least 10-12 follicles 2-10 mm in diameter or increased ovarian volume.This is called 'pearl string appearance'.
Investigations which are done to diagnose PCOD are FSH , LH , Prolactin , DHEA's etc under doctor's guidance.
Low dose oral contarceptives and progesterone are also given for menstrual irregularities. You will need Deviry again to get back the periods once.
I hope this answers your query. Wishing you good health.

Take care.
