The actress, as part of her new Instagram series Storytime With Sonam, shared a few tips and hacks on how to deal with PCOS/PCOD based on her own experience. 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."

Having said that, PCOS manifests in different ways, and I urge you to visit a doctor before you self-medicate or self-prescribe."
