Hello, welcome to HCM,
Firstly, the symptoms you described indicates a presence of hypothyroidism.
TSH report also supports the diagnosis.
After getting back the normal thyroid level, you may have lower body weight.
After 3 months of taking medicine, you have to do the next test.
If thyroid problem get settled, you can be able to be pregnant.

Welcome to healthcaremagic.

Hypothyroidism is quite a common problem and easily treatable.

Symptoms like weight gain/lose of hairs/irregular periods could be related to low activity of Thyroid gland. With commencement of treatment, these symptoms should get better.

Rechecking Thyroid levels is generally recommended 8-12 weeks after commencing the treatment.

With regards to pregnancy and childbirth, it usually doesn't have too much impact on the baby. However, there are certain thyroid problems (like autoimmune thyroiditis) where there could be some effect on the baby. It would be advisable to speak to your doctor about your plans for pregnancy and he can guide you better.

All the best
