She posted a video, in which she can be heard saying: “I have been suffering from it for several years, since I was like 14 or 15 and it has been the bane of my existence. I have gone to several doctors and dieticians to help myself and right now, I am in a good place. I thought I will share my learnings with you guys.”
In the clip, Sonam Kapoor said that regular “exercise and yoga” has helped her a lot and added that those suffering from PCOD can also “avoid sugar” as it has proved beneficial in her case.

PCOS, or PCOD, is a very common condition that a lot of women live with. It’s also an extremely confusing condition since everyone’s cases, symptoms and struggles are different. I’ve finally figured out what helps me after years of trying several diets, workouts and routines, and I want to share my tips for managing PCOS with you! Having said that, PCOS manifests in different ways, and I urge you to visit a doctor before you self-medicate or self-prescribe.”
