Irregular periods, unbearable pain during mc, under-reactive thyroid, anemia, diarrhoea. What is possible reason and cure?

Hello, I am female and 14 years old. I weigh 8.8 stone and am 5'ft'5. I have very irregular periods, often skipping a few months, and coming on heavy and then skipping 4 months or so and being light.
I have a mixture of problems. The first is-when I get a period the pain is unbearable. I can often be found, crying, bent over and sweating badly, paracetamol and ibuprofen is no help. I have under-reactive thyroid glands and anemia and I am a vegetarian but am on Ferrous Sulphate and Levothyroxine medication which I started about 7-8 months ago.
The main problem is that I have had really bad diarrhea for about two months now. It is bad coming little and often and my anus burns badly, and before I can relieve myself-I get an unbearable stomach cramp that cannot be relieved until I can go to the toilet. I finished my period two days ago and since the diarrhea started-my periods have been regular. My acne is also getting worse, that may be a side-effect.

From your multiple problems it seems that these are mainly due to,
1,This is puberty age so there are hormonal changes going on leading to profuse, irregular period, pain during period time and period early or late.
2, You have got hypothyroid.
So all problems are associated with your these two conditions.
Diarrhea you get might be due to ferrous sulphate tablet, taking for anemia.
There is also a possibility of having B12 deficiency.
So go for blood B12 estimation.
Wait for few months for your problems of period, if problem persisted then go for 3-4 cycles of hormonal medicine course after consulting your doctor.
Keep thyroid under control.
Ok and take care.
