hi,
welcome to healthcare magic
these are all expected in such cases.you can take OCP which contains anti androgen for pigmenation(like diane35 0-0-1 for 21 days then 7days gap then restart it in the same way -continue it for at least 6months) and metformin 500 mg 1-1-1 for wt gain along with your regular medications

Hi Badarishisha,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
For you the best advice is to consult a very good endocrinologist/gynecologist and take the medicines regularly. The pigmentation is common in hypothyroidism. Th endocrinologist whom you are going to meet can help you regarding this.
Take care

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar
