Describing the symptoms she suffers as a result of PCOS, she candidly shared: ‘Not only do I get bloated every single day, I also get really bad cramping, it makes me feel bigger than I actually am, it effects [sic] my mood and I don’t get my period for months at a time. It makes me slightly insecure and most of all it can effect me mentally.’
