Another Question About Weight Gain And Loss

So here's the deal, i've been on othro tri cyclen for 5 years now and have constantly gained 5lbs each year. I wasn't small to begin with so this added weight has not been pleasant. I've gone from 155lbs to 180lbs. I recently linked this gain to my bc pill since all other aspects of my life have either stayed the same or improved. For example I exercise more and eat healthier, yet I still gain weight. So I have decided to switch pills but I don't know which one to go to. I'm not looking for a miracle weight loss pill, I just want one that won't add more weight. So if ya'll could just take a minute to reply and tell me which pill has made you gain weight and which didn't it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. S

It's different for everyone. I was on the pill for 3 months (and a diff brand each month!) and gained 10lbs.. When I got off the pill I lost the weight in like a day. So you just have to try different brands to find out which is best for you cause it will be different to other people's experiences!

Try demulin 1/35. My doctor and surgeon suggested it. It is suppost to be one of the best birth-control pills for weight and side effects.
