On the latest podcast episode of Coffee Convo’s, Kailyn revealed to her co-host Lindsie Chrisley that she had some serious side effects to her PCOS medication.
PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a hormonal disorder that affects up to 5 million women. Kailyn revealed that she started taking the medication in March but has since stopped using them due to the serious side effects.
Kailyn stated that the medication was giving her major gastrointestinal issues to the point where it was affecting her day-to-day routines.
“I literally couldn’t go anywhere without needing a bathroom at all times. It’s an hour drive from where I live to where Lux stays with his dad, and I would pull over two to three times in the hour because I have to go to the bathroom. I can’t live like that.”
She admitted that treating her PCOS was harder than she expected:
“Part of it is because I think I expected it to be so much easier to do less carbs when I was on metformin because it doesn’t really mix well with carbs, but that being said, I didn’t realize that everything is essentially a carb, and I need to figure out what my carb tolerance is. That’s what I was struggling with. So, that was a struggle a little bit,”
Kailyn also claimed to have “super heavy” periods.
Kailyn said that a result of the issue caused her to have a mental breakdown because she didn’t fully understand the symptoms she was having. She stated that she was “very unmotivated and very discouraged”.
Kailyn stated that she’s doing better now and is focusing on the positive notions throughout her life.
