Dear Doc

When I found out that I was pregnant with my second child I found out that my thyrone gland is underactive and was put on Eltroxin 0.01 mg 2x a day. After she was born my menstruation stayed away for at least 4 months, then when it came back it was so irregular that I would menstruate 6 times in one month, sometimes even more.

I went on tryphasil after her birth and stayed on that until about 4 months ago, then the dr discovered that my blood preasure is high so I was put on Myprodol, now for the last month I have not been using anything to see if my menstruation will come alright but still for this month I menstruated 5 times.

And the other thing Doc is that I am not losing any weight, I am picking up weight for no reason, and it is really getting to a point now that I am overweight by 20kg. I tried diets but no success, I am picking up even more when I am on a diet.

Please can you give me some advice on what can be wrong.

Thank you
