Weight Gain due to PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Dear All,

PCOS is caused by Hormonal imbalance due to insulin resistance. This make a person Obese. Is it a cause for concern.. Yes it is.

People who have PCOS find it very difficult to loose weight. Working women who do flexible shifts are the most prone. If you notice that your periods are irregular, you should get yourself checked as soon as possible.

If you are in your teens and have this syndrome do not worry, go get yourself checked by a good gynecologist and take medicine. You will notice a drastic change in your weight once you are under medication and your quality of life will improve.

Women who do flexible shifts should try and get a permanent shift. Once done take the prescribed medicine and do not miss it.

Get the ultrasound done as and when advised by your doctor.

PCOS causes Infertility, weight gain, hormonal imbalance, fatigue, depression, hair loss, skin problems, facial hair, PAINFUL PERIODS and too much of clotting during chums.

In PCOS you may loose weight by continuously exercising. However you may notice that as soon as you stop you will have a tendency of putting on weight almost immediately. Its important to take medication ON TIME.

Women who plan on getting married and want a baby in their first two years should undergo treatment before marriage. This increases the chances of conception.

Try staying HAPPY as stress can be a major reason for PCOS. Do any form of exercise and ENJOY it. Watch yourself loosing weight little by little and stay POSITIVE.

Your doctor may suggest surgery, ask your doctor a lot of question as why its important... I'm sure without a reason your doctor would never suggest that. Get it done once convinced as it would improve your quality of life.

Remember PCOS CAN BE TREATED. Have faith in your doctor and stay HAPPY.

Till next time take care and stay healthy

One of the surgery's that your doctors may suggest is : Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy. Its important that you talk to your doctor about everything. Be educated about your health to stay healthy :)


I agree that before opting for surgery you should do your research. Any program is a good program if it gives the desired long term results and does not make holes in the pocket.

Its also advisable that you do your research on these programs as chances of rebound are high.

Mugi, please give us the details of this program on this forum as it may benefit a lot of people.
