I have polycystic ovary syndrome. I have learned from my doctors and reading that PCOS can cause weight gain. Maybe this is the reason why there is a high occurence of this disease in obese women. It might be a matter similar to the confusion of which cames first the chiken or the egg?

That’s true, polycystic ovary syndrome is been seen in obese people more. All the best.
