Response to Anyone else gain alot of weight from ivf?


Steroids are awful for weight gain, they make you so hungry, and it is "real" weight from overeating (not water weight), hard to lose steroid weight...progesterone is similar but not as extreme and that weight usually comes off once the drug stops, similar to PMS weight gain goes away when progesterone levels out. Estrogen causes water retention and that seems to resolve quickly too. I noticed weight got back to normal within a couple months without being on a diet or anything.

Another issue for over-40 women is weight gain, weight shifting to abdomen, and spare tire around belly that has nothing to do with cycling, just age unfortunately.
