indigestion, wind, irregular periods, tender breasts and bladder weakness. is this normal? i have gained around 2 stone, but i was almost underweight which ive been for most of my life. perhaps i am now almost overweight. i have always been petite and not sure what i should weigh

Is there any chance you could be pregnant?

i doubt it very much. i was wondering if it was maybe my ovaries or hormonal?

It might be, I would definitely go and get checked out. Unexplained weight gain could possibly be a symptom of underactive thyroid, but your other symptoms do sound more hormonal.

There's a chart here where you can check your weight against your height if thats any help.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but were you underweight because of an eating disorder (you don't have to answer if you don't want to) it's just that I was very underweight when I was younger - due to an ED, and it affected my periods and general health for a good few years after I started getting better.

no eating disorder, just a very stressful lifestyle
