Thanks for our query.
Scanty periods could be because of hypothyroidism.
For a TSH of 8.57, she should be starting replacement thyroxine.
Also, emergency pills are not supposed to be used so casually or frequentl.
It would not affect future pregnancy, however these pills would alter your menstrual cycles.
She should follow nutritious diet, with lots of green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits and plenty of protein in diet.
Take care.
