Microgynon 30 - weight gain and temperature watch

    Anon or delete please...

    Has anyone found that taking this pill has increased your body temperature? I've been getting really hot very easily since around the time i started using it and i'm trying to work out if it's anything i'm doing or just me...
    Also, it's made me gain weight a bit (not much, just i'd like to get back to how i was before i started it), would stopping taking it make it easier to lose the weight i've gained if that makes sense?

    Thanks.

    Hmm... i think i might have a trip to the doctors and see what they say. It's just annoying always feeling hot when everyone else is cold lol! I had a look on google but nothing comes up about the pill and increased temperature...

    Different types of pill have different effects on different people. If you're not happy just talk to your doctor and try another one. I've had no problems at all on microgynon, but it might not be for you. And the pill can't specifically increase your weight, it just increases your appitite. If you just eat normally you shouldn't gain anything.

    I haven't gained weight from taking this pill, but I have found myself getting hot flushes every so often.

    Only place it made my girlfriend gain weight was her tits..

    So yes, it does make you hotter.
    Oh yea, this as well - I went from a D to an E/EE.

    I dont think it made me put on weight, though my chest expanded. It did give me a headache everyday though, so they switched me to a different one.

    Not being able to lose weight shouldn't be because of the pill. The pill increases your appetite but can't force you to eat, so just be careful of your diet

    I was on it for 5 years and it had the same effect. Permanent sweating (overheating I call it) and weight gain.
    Since I've come off it I've lost all the weight I gained (through diet and exercise) and my temperature has leveled and I'm now a lot cooler than previously.

    I suggest you ask your GP to try you on another pill.

    I'm on Microgynon but haven't experienced any side effects at all, it depends what suits your body. My advice would be to go to your GP and ask to be put on a different pill. I had a friend who had similar side effects with Microgynon and switched to a different pill where she didn't get any. It all depends, you've just got to figure out what works for you.

    The pill doesn't magically make you put on weight; for many, it increases their appetite. You just need to learn to watch what you eat and monitor your weight as appropriate :yep: As for the temperature... Go see your GP I've been on Microgynon and Femodette and never encountered the temperature thing!

    The only side effects I've had from it was increased boob size. Like everyone else is saying- just try and switch to a different pill.

    I lost weight on microgyon ... but I did notice I felt sick and hot quite often - although I put this down to exam stress at the time. And I think my boobs got bigger too.
    And the reason you put on weight when you go on the pill is that it increases your appetite - not that it actually makes you put on weight really, so if you jut make sure you're eating the same amounts that you used to your weight should go back to normal.
    But just like other people have said - just ask your doctor to give you a different one.

    B to DD/E. I'm happy about it, she's not.
    I didn't even see B cup bra - started with C and then went to D and then pill added value to E/EE.

    Ah well - having big boobs isn't everything. More of a hindrance IMO!

    That probably has nothing to do with Microgynon.
