I'm a young woman, having problems with fatigue, weight gain

Patient : I'm a young woman, having problems with fatigue, weight gain, irritability, moodiness, hot flashes and hot/cold feet and hands. My thyroid levels always come back in normal range. My estrogen levels are very low like a post-menopausal woman. My doctor says it could be stress/anxiety combined with my BC pill but my dose is low and I'm not stressed or have symptoms.
Symptoms:  Fatigue, weight gain (calorie intake is less than 1500 a day with daily cardio and weight lifting), hot flashes, hot/cold hands and feet, and sweating.
