Question: birth control pill weight gain


 shotym - Thu May 26, 2005 9:15 pm

Hello, I have a question regarding the birth control pill. For the last six or seven years I have been on the birth control pill and have experienced a lot of weight gain. I have taken the Mircette birth control, Alesse, and am currently on Ortho-Triclen Lo. I am trying to find a birth control pill that will cause the least amount of weight gain and water weight. Can you please tell me what you suggest. Please email me at love4chopper@yahoo.com Thank you very much!!

User avatar Hi shotym,
The problem is, a certain birth control pill may work wonderfully for one woman and cause no side effects, may not work well for another woman because everyone is unique you need to find what will work well for you. If your current birth control is causing unpleasant side effects, report this to your physician for an acceptable alternative.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
