Can I get pcos after having a baby due to weight gain during pregnancy?

Can I get pcos after having a baby due to weight gain during pregnancy?

No (not really): Weight gain does not give you, or anyone else PCOS, but it may worsen the condition if you have it. PCOS is an inherited metabolic disorder that can be modified (worse/better) by lifestyle including weight. If you don't have PCOS you can't give it to yourself, likewise if you have it it can't be "cured," but can be improved. good wishes. ...Read more

Fertility: I have to apologize first, but I am somewhat confused over your presentation. You mentioned a weight of 39. Is it kilograms or pounds? Both, though, would be considered extremely low weight, lbs worse than kgs. Pcos is normally seen in overweight women, so there seems to be some kind of mismatch there. If your weight is so low, you will need a work up to find out why it is so. ...Read more

Hormones: PCOS is a hormone condition that women have when their ovaries have thick skin that makes it difficult for them to ovulate. The body produces more testosterone in an effort to help this situation. This causes male like hair distribution, abd girth weight gain and can cause problems with infertility. Spironolactone helps reduce testosterone. http://www.webmd.com/women/tc/polycystic-ovary-syndrome-pcos-topic-overview ...Read more

Can PCOS be temporary? Years ago had acne, slight weight gain, hair on neck. Now, slim and no acne, had a normal pregnancy, reg periods. went away?

Yes: PCOS is linked to insulin resistance, which is usually but not always caused by being overweight and worsened by being more overweight. There is a confusing, but beginning to be understood interplay between insulin, LH and FSH, as well as other hormones. When you lose weight and the insulin resistance improves and so does the PCOS. If resolved with diet/exercise you are doing great! Keep it up. ...Read more

I have had some queasiness during my 7w pregnancy but not often or severe. Does that mean that my hormones are low? Do i need to worry? I have pcos.

I have had some queasiness during my 7w pregnancy but not often or severe. Does that mean that my hormones are low? Do i need to worry? I have pcos.

NO worries: It is common to have GI symptoms in pregnancy due to hormone levels. Your pregnancy hormone is causing nausea and bloating/constipation. As long as you have had an ultrasound showing a heartbeat over 120 a minute you have a 95% chance your pregnancy is fine. Pcos is not important once you are pregnant! except if you have diabetes. Eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids and take folic acid! ...Read more
