In brief: Blood test.

Thyroid function is checked by analyzing the hormone levels in your blood.
When your period is late, check a pregnancy test, if the possibility of getting pregnant exists. See a doc for evaluation and appropriate testing.

Hypothyroidism is diagnosed by blood testing.
Symptoms include fatigue, weight gain, and dry skin. Anovulation which causes irregular menses is often associated with hypothyroidism.
