Is it water retention or fat?

cheerful1_gwAugust 16, 2006

I haven't gotten my period in 3 months; during that time, my belly and hips got bigger. Everything else stayed the same. How do you know if you gained weight, or just water?

I'd assume it's fat.... if it's that much water, you might go to the doc over it. That much water retention might indicate a kidney problem.
