I am 23 years old. I am really worried and fed up with my fat thighs and hips. As I am suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome and I used to miss my menses. Now, my menstruation is regular. But, whenever I skip physical exercise I am sure that I will miss my menses. I think these all are the reasons for my fat thighs and hips. Sometimes, this problem makes me frustrated. Please suggest me some measure.
As you are a case of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), which brings obesity and insulin resistance along with it. Consult a doctor for medical advice to lose weight and improve insulin resistance to allow regular menses to occur. Also it is important to maintain healthy ovulation and hormonal balance. Your water intake should be increased to 5-6 quarts a day. Also, complete avoidance of fast food is necessary and exercises should be continued. I suggest you to get a hormonal profile, serum testosterone, fasting insulin and thyroid levels done to decide whether medication is necessary.
