Your actual weight should be your height minus 100.
If you are overwight than it is advisable to reduce your weight by avoiding junk food and eating more of salads , vegetables and fruits and drinking atleast 2.5 litre water oer day.
Exercise atleast half an hour per day.
Sickle cell anemia does not cause hypomenorrhea.
You may have to do your thyroid hormones assay.
