Incredibly rapid weight gain-the pill? Watch
i thought the pill causing weight gain was a myth.
Well there's supposedly no scientific evidence to support this (source=the leaflet that comes inside my pill box)but I bet 9 out of 10 women say they gain weight after going on the pill
i dont buy it at all.
All in all I tried 5 different pills, mainly to help control my cycle. However, after the first 3 ish months - of thinking oh my god I love this haha, my clothes started to get tighter. I put on weight on my bums, boobs, thighs etcc and went up to a size 10-12 :-/ it was reallllyyyy getting me down.
I went to the doctor and I was basically told most methods of contraception can have this effect, like the implant and the injection. So basically, after another agonising two years of trying everything to shift it, I came off the pill altogether.
Since then I have gone down to a size 6-8 and feel much healthier. I now weigh 8 stone, not 10 and a half which i was not happy with for my 5ft5 build.
Also I feel more confident in myself, as the pill made me feel really depressed. The only way for me was to come off the pill, perhaps its best contacting your gp? otherwise ... back to the condoms eh?
