That's a really great question that you've asked! Yay for girlie questions! hah!
So with my PCOS and at my heaviest (335) I did NOT get a period.. zip nada nothing. Not even once. I was not on birth control either so I never got it, naturally or artificially. When I started losing weight I didn't see a difference in my period (aka I didn't start getting it) until I had lost about 60-75lbs. I don't quite remember when. But after talking to my doctor, we discovered that for me, YES losing weight did help in that area. (As well as eating the foods I should be was a factor too). However because of PCOS my period was still irregular (One period lasted 2 months, then 3 weeks, etc) So if you're irregular I'd reccomend Birth Control.. or talk to a Homeopathic Doctor and you can try natural ways to get your period on track (takes longer though). But yes, my OBGYN figures that when I'm down to a normall weight my period will be normal!!
Sorry for the long reply.. I'm a rather detailed person..
So glad you are going to and loving a gym. People at gyms rarely are anything but supportive and you can get lots of ideas and learn many new things just by watching. Keep up the great work! 1995 days ago
