What should I do to gain weight and for irregular periods ?

I am 20 yrs old female with 41kg weight and 163cms. I appear to be thin and weak, but take the same food as my younger sister who is healthy with normal weight. My mother provides me with all the nutritious food, seasonal fruits and vegetables. But still I am not able to gain enough weight. I am a good student, and my parents are worried that this will effect my studies. I also have irregular periods. I have consulted a number of general physicians, who suggested me a liver checkup which came out to be normal. Every time I visit them, they prescribe me with some vitamin tablets and stuff, which don t seem to show any effect on me.Totally, am depressed about this and not able to concentrate. Please help me with an effective solution for my problem.

Hello,
Try including dry fruits, curds,cheese in your diet.It is not necessary a person has to obese to hit the gym , it applies to people who are thin also.Enroll in a gym which has a good trainer and dietecian.you need to start doing weight training exercises which will help increase your BMR, & apetite.Cardiovascular exercises can be avoided except for the initial warmup.Irreguler periods could be due to the hormonal imbalance caused by being underweight.Hope this helps.

I started a birth control called Lomedia in May or June of 2014. I started this pill because I was constantly bleeding and it would only stop for a number of days. My periods were heavy, painful and irregular. At the time, I weighed around 120 pounds. I am currently 18 and now weigh 144 pounds. I have never been this much in my life and I am very frustrated. My question is...should i stop taking my birth control or not? Will it take my gained weight off if I stop?
