I have PCOS and a progesterone deficiency.

Last year my Dr. put me on Aygestin (a progestin) everyday because my uterine lining was too thick and all of a sudden I started to drop weight. My moods were amazing, no more anxiety, and I was losing weight like a normal person should on a "diet"!

I am also able to lose weight if on birth control because it sort of puts a bandaid on it and makes my body think everything is normal.

Now.. been off hormones since May and I have been gaining and losing the same 5lbs which most of it is water weight. I know I need to be on some sort of progesterone to lose weight. I have no idea why I can't lose weight with out progesterone.

Sorry to take the thread off topic but ugh, it's such a pain in the butt. I am wondering if my thyroid could be off now as well.
