How can I lose weight fast & how to make my acne go alway ?

Take charge: Acne can be managed until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid hasn't cleared you, or if it's severe or on your trunk, get with your physician. It's not lifestyle, diet or hygiene related.

Why do I lose weight during my period, but straight after my period, I rapidly gain weight. I am currently taking the microgynon pill for my acne?

Water weight: The pill is taken for three weeks, and then stopped for a week during which one experiences menses or period. It is not uncommon for women to retain fluids from hormones, especially progestins, and then to eliminate the excess fluid when the progestins are stopped. Decreasing the salt in your diet as well as avoiding a high carbohydrate diet may help in stabilizing the weight gain. ...Read more

Would it be easier for me to lose weight if i stop using TriNessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol)? (I use the pill to treat acne and cramps)

Minimal effect: The use of TriNessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) at most may be leading to a pound or two of weight change, so stopping it is not going to make a huge difference. It still boils down to you needing to take in fewer calories in what you eat or burn more calories with exercise. If you think that the pill is going to make some huge difference in your weight, it will not. ...Read more

I don't trust pills so what do I do?

Problem with pcos is hormaone imbalance which makes it harder to achieve goals without regulating hormones. Your obgyn should be able to give you safe, effective hormone control, which will help your other issues. ...Read more
