Can a period make you gain weight when you’re trying to lose weight?
- 3 months agoFavourite answer
In general, yes. This is because
A) Balancing hormones is hard. Hormone imbalance generally makes you hungry and makes it hard to lose weight.
B) Your period makes your body retain more water, because it needs to make a whole new mucosal lining, which requires a lot of water.
C) Being on your period makes you want to eat more, which makes it hard to lose weight.

You retain water. It will go away.
