Weight Gain and PCOS

Posted on May 25, 2018

If you have PCOS, managing your weight is frustrating. For many women with PCOS, weight gain is related more to hormone levels than diet. In fact, many women with PCOS struggle to maintain their current weight even with diet changes and exercise. Losing the extra weight is also challenging because of body changes, fatigue, and medication side effects.

On myPCOSteam, the social network and online support group for women living with PCOS, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Weight gain is one of the most discussed subjects.
