Hi, Janelle,

Yes, losing weight can help with PCO.

The most common immediate symptoms are anovulation, excess androgenic hormones, and insulin resistance. Anovulation results in irregular menstruation, amenorrhea, and ovulation-related infertility. Hormone imbalance generally causes acne and hirsutism. Insulin resistance is associated with obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol levels.[10] The symptoms and severity of the syndrome vary greatly among affected women.

So get ahead of the game and begin losing weight if you need to in case you get insulin resistance and begin gaining weight.

All the best,
Tony
