I had a horrible time trying to lose weight on ortho even with diet and tons of exercise i couldn't even lose a couple lbs. I then switched to ortho lo and i had stopped trying to lose weight and it just seemed to come off by itself. Atleast 7 lbs, mind you i did turn into a raging lunatic
I guess it just depends on the pill but i assume the weight would come off atleast a little bit.
I was way skinny when i went on birth control and i went on it because i stopped getting my periods and i thought it would help them come back. It did, but i gained a lot of weight, it was so annoying! so i stopped taking them. Its been two months now and the weight is still there. It wont come off! I have no idea what else to do cause i eat very healthy.
I was on the Depo Provera BC Shot and gained 50 lbs in 10 months! I thought it would be a good idea to switch to pills, I gained an additional 10 pounds in the 11 months I was taking it. I finally decided to go with an IUD. I chose the copper T because I belive the hormones in Mirena would just continue to pile pounds on. Copper T is hormone free! Its been 14 days as of today being off the pills and I have lost seven pounds effortlessly! All of our bodies are different but if all tha hormones are making you heavier, try a hormone free contraceptive. Worked for me!
