So I found out late last year (2011) that I am a strong candidate of PCOS (along with my hypothyroidism, low estrogen/protestrogen levels, and Insulin Resistance.) I am currently on birth control pills (Diane 35) for the first time. I have a question however regarding weight fluctuations and TOM.
Considering that you're on the pill up until the day you stop or take placebos, when does the weight increase for you guys for the TOM? I figure as long as you're taking the pills your body would keep thinking you're 'period free' and so you shouldn't be gaining until you stop, then you get your period two days after. Is this correct or do you still get PMS and pre-TOM weight gain while on the pill anyways? How does that even work?
I'm trying to decide if my weight gain was a result of my sodium intake levels and exercise or my upcoming period (I took a pill yesterday night but today will be my first day off and its still morning) so any help and experience would be greatly appreciated!
