OBGYN 's  Response
In the current scenario, the best thing to do is to see a gynecologist, get a complete evaluation and exclude/confirm pregnancy through urine and blood tests along with a trans-vaginal sonogram. Also, please get your thyroid profile and ensure that you are taking a proper maintenance dose to get euthyroid. Your symptoms could mean anything from thyroid insufficiency to your hormonal imbalance caused by the pills. Please remember that you may not be protected this cycle as you have not taken them properly. Hope this helps.
