‘Pretty Little Liars’ Star Sasha Pieterse Reflects On Gaining 70 Pounds At 17

Sasha Pieterse is reflecting on the health challenges she faced during her time filming “Pretty Little Liars.” On a new episode of Taylor Lautner and his wife Tay Lautner’s podcast “The Squeeze,” the actress shed light on the struggles she faced and her eventual diagnosis with polycystic ovary syndrome, also known as PCOS. Sasha told Taylor and Tay that she never had a regular period, and that at 15 or 16, when she was a few seasons into “PLL,” she started noticing a difference in her metabolism, gaining 70 pounds in a year. The Freeform star went to more than a dozen doctors, but wasn’t getting any answers, until an endocrinologist finally tested her for PCOS.
