Most women do not gain weight on the Pill but a small percentage do. This is most likely related to water retention and should not cause more than 3-4kg weight gain.

Hi Zee

I do not agree with !!!. According to my doc an my personal experience it has to do with hormones and this can in fact make you gain weight. I gained 8 kg. No amount of excersise, diet or even starvation helps. Only started loosing weight 10 weeks after I left the pill.

Good luck!
