Yep went through this recently.. it was the first time ever gaining that much weight for me so I almost fainted from shock! I feel less bloated now and my stomach isn't sticking out as much, but I am scared to weigh myself again lol!

I have had those same type of experiences and the spiranolactone really helps!

Are any of you on spironolactone? it helps with pcos symptoms like unwanted hair and acne, and it is also a water pill, so helps with bloating.

I seriously thought I was alone in this. I've gained up to 12 lbs in the week before my period. I can feel myself blowing up like a beach ball! I also get very bloated and gassy. It's sooo uncomfortable. Once my period does finally come, I sort of deflate, and do so rapidly.

I thought i was alone in this! I definitely gain weight before/during my period and then lose it as I "deflate." Just one of those things.

One of my PMS symptoms is severe gas. So on top of an already bloated, crampy day - I double the fun with a dose of gas bloat and cramps! And if that wasn't frustrating enough... I only actually have a period every 3-4 months... but PMS - EVERY month like clockwork! emoticon

So yep... feeling your pain.. literally! emoticon

I literally feel like a balloon & then thankfully I slowly deflate after my period, but very slowly...it takes about a week to lose all the extra weight & to get over my PMS & pains. It is truly awful and I feel horrible, but I do like the deflating part in the end. :)

So, who else has ever put on 6 pounds in the course of the week before their period? I honestly feel so crampy and bloated right now, but my period refuses to come. Blah!!!! Normally I'll go up 2 or 3 pounds, but this is RIDICULOUS! I haven't changed my tracking numbers, cause I'm hoping it'll disappear by next week! *sigh*
