In brief: PCOS; not all heavy

You may be thinking of polycystic ovarian syndrome or pcos with some major caveats: some women with pcos are overweight, some are normal weight.
Not all are 'chubby'. Some women with pcos are infertile/ subfertile, some have normal fertility. Finally birth control pills are a treatment for women with pcos who aren't trying to conceive; if ttc we use Clomid (clomiphene) or letrozole, plus metformin, most often.

In brief: Polycystic ovarian syndrome

Pcos can cause unwanted weight gain and abnormal ovulation along with excessive hair growth.
When women are not trying to conceive one of the treatments is using birth control pills.
