WOMAN STOPS TAKING BIRTH CONTROL AND HER WEIGHT SPIRALS OUT OF CONTROL

I was always around 60kg in poly. I was also on birth control and spironolactone for PCOS.

I stopped taking both pills in March 2021 and by May 2021 I had gained about seven kilograms. It is now December of 2022 and I’m up 23 kilograms and now weighing over 90kg!!!

I’m honestly just so lost on what to do. My doctors have tested me for thyroid and other problems and they say everything looks normal. They just recommend I diet and go to the gym (of course, I don’t think they recommend anything else LOL) but I was never a diet or gym person.

I didn’t play sports in school, never went to the gym, and def didn’t diet and I never gained weight. I started taking birth control again sometime in 2021 and didn’t see any big changes. I just started the spironolactone again but I’m still not seeing a steadying in my weight.

I looked up the side effects of quitting spironolactone and a lot of other women have had the same experience (gaining extreme amounts of weight).

But how do I fix this???

I don’t eat salads every day but I don’t eat out often or eat very unhealthy meals at home, so doctors telling me to diet confuses me. And I’m a uni student so I walk to class (about 1km there and back) everyday. I could maybe walk around a little more, but I feel like that won’t help.

Sorry this is so long but I just want to explain the full story.

Hopefully someone can help! I’m to the point of having breakdowns every time I look into the mirror because no matter what I try, the weight is still coming on. I wouldn’t be as upset if I stopped gaining weight, but it’s like I gain 2-3 kilograms every month STILL. please help your girl out.
