Symptoms - weight gain, depression, late periods since second delivery and 2 years back. Do I need thyroid medicine?

Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com.

I would like to know when was this thyroid test done?

This seems to be a very mild thyroid dysfunction.

Does anyone in your family have thyroid problem? I would recommend you to consult an endocrinologist online to go for some more testing (like thyroid antibodies and repeat thyroid function test) and initiate thyroid medication if necessary --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/endocrinologist
