Weight gain after induced abortion
I have been on progesterone suppositories since mid 2016 and have greatly benefited by it. I am from India and choose suppositories as creams prove to be very expensive. I have PCOS and hypothyroid which is under control with diet and also with the progesterone suppositories. I have two kids (age 6 and 4) and have had 1 misacrrige 10 years ago. Typically I have seen that I put on weight afetr delivery.
I am 39 years old, for most of my adult life been between 71 to 73kgs. After my daughter (second child) I had put on 10 kgs and I lost it after getting on progesterone suppositories (100mg twice a day). In July 2017 I got pregnant and opted to abort. Post that I have now again put on 12kgs and currently weigh 86kgs, which is alarming. This brings on a host of other problems for me and particularly insulin resistance increases.
Since August after the abortion I have got my periods only thrice and scanty except for the first one which was heavy. My last "period" was merely spotting.
My diet has not changed much ...for 70% of the time I follow a moderate protein, high fat and moderate carb diet. I have tried 200mg (suppositories- susten or endogest) of progesterone twice a day and that made me have dry skin and a lot of uneasiness. So I switched to 100mg twice a day. I have also tried NAC 600mg once a day for 1 month. Nothing seems to work and I am still gaining weight. I am getting very frustrated now. I have searched your blog for any other similar cases but I did not find any.
Would deeply appreciate a response and any advice on what I can do to shift my weight gain.
