User Profile
I first started birth control in January 2008, I used the shot (Depo Provera) for a year, and decided to switch in hopes of losing the weight I gained; 25 lbs. I know that I gained the weight by eating more, but I believe the shot was to blame for my increased appetite. Since then I've been on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, I've tried eating better and working out, but I never lose any weight. I just want to lose weight, but I still want to be on birth control. What birth control would help me lose weight? But not bring worse side effects such as hair growth, and acne?
