Victoria Monét is getting candid about her body as she deals with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

The “On My Mama” singer, 34, posted a photo of herself performing onstage during Coachella on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, April 23, and shared what she thought about the changes to her body since being diagnosed with the chronic hormonal condition.

In the photo, Monét could be seen with her back toward the camera as she posed on stage in front of an image of the moon and night sky behind her.

“Welp.. I gained a lot of weight and it went a lot of places lol face, arms, tummy and most effectively… datassss,” she captioned the photo, while describing the areas of her body where she saw changes.

“I usually am so critical and frustrated by it because PCOS has me really messed up, but optimistically at least now there’s two moons on the stage,” she jokingly added alongside a crying face emoji.

According to John Hopkins Medicine, PCOS occurs when a woman produces an “abnormal amount of androgens” — or male sex hormones — which can then cause missed periods or irregular periods. With PCOS, cysts can form in the ovaries, making it difficult for women to get pregnant.

Despite the changes in her body, it appears that the musician is choosing to keep a positive mindset as she also shared a collage of photos showing some fun memories at the annual music festival held in Indio, California.

The photos and videos showed her preparing for her performance and singing onstage. She also shared behind-the-scenes pics of her posing on the festival grounds and even snapped a picture with fellow performer Chloe Bailey.

“Damn Coachella 🏜️ I loved you and you loved me right back,” she captioned the photos.

This has been a big year for Monét, who attended her first-ever Grammy Awards in February and snagged three wins. She even brought her daughter, Hazel, 3, who was also recognized as the youngest nominee after "Hollywood," her mom's song with Earth, Wind & Fire, was nominated for best traditional R&B performance.

"It's a really big deal. I think it's another full-circle moment for me because during pregnancy, everything was really scary," Monét told PEOPLE in December, while discussing her daughter's accomplishment. "People were telling me how bad of a career move it could be, how detrimental to everything it could be."

"Pregnancy, it's going into unknown territory and no one's story is the same. So, to have one of the more fearful moments career-wise turn into one of the best moments ever of my career is really magical. I'm honored to have the accolade for her," she added.
