What should i do

I was just reading through some of the questions on the site - I am having similar problems to JO and was wondering if there is any advise from anybody regarding the pill and all the implications using it.

Thanks very much

The Pill can predispose to thrush and may cause a small amount of weight gain in some women. It does not cause acne, though the Pill most suitable for acne is Diane 35. It is protective against ovarian cysts. If you wish to stop, finish the packet and then stop.

Best wishes

I noticed that nobody replied to Jo (posted yesterday PLEASE HELP) yet - maybe somebody should try and help her - but my problem in short:
I recently started a new pill (also Triphasil) and even though I haven't changed my diet or execise routine I am gaining weight (about 1kg per week). I would like to know if the pill could be the reason for various problems such as vaginal infection, weight gain, ovarian cysts and skin problems? Will it be better for me to stop using the pill completely - what could the implications be and should I fininsh my current cycle before I stop?

Thank you - I am really confused.
