Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Weight gain despite eating little and irregular menstruation are indeed symptoms that appear with hypothyroidism, but usually there are also other symptoms of hypothyroidism, such as muscle weakness, cold easily, easily tired, hair loss, blurred vision and so on.
And usually to diagnose hypothyroidism in addition to the similarity of symptoms, additional tests are also needed to objectively measure thyroid hormone levels in the body. For more details about hypothyroid conditions, you can click the following link to our article on Hypothyroidism.
If it's not due to hypothyroidism, another possibility regarding your condition is hormonal changes, which can be triggered by too much activity, being overweight or underweight, eating fatty foods, stress and the side effects of taking birth control or certain drugs.
Our advice if you do suspect that you have hypothyroidism, check with your doctor, and as we have said before, if your doctor also suspects this, you will be asked to do the appropriate laboratory tests. Meanwhile, exercise regularly, get enough rest, avoid stress and multiply the consumption of nutrient-rich foods. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
