I thought I would go ahead and post this here and see if anyone has run into this problem.
I started my weight loss journey at 280 pounds. I had tried to lose weight but couldn't lose much. Once my doctor put me on ocella birth-control to help with my pcos, I lost about 50 pounds nearly effortlessly. ( I did change the way I ate but aside from that I didn't do much else. )
Now I've gotten to the point where I've noticed during the week where I have my period, when I'm taking the placebo pills, I lose a lot of water weight quickly. And just as soon as I start taking birth control pills again I gain about 2 pounds back after each period just as soon as I start a new pack of the pills.
Is this this normal or what has everyone else experienced with this? I'm almost worried that it is stalling my weight loss and if I were to go off of the birth-control I would lose easier. Is there a point when you have lost enough weight for your body to go back to "normal" and not need the birth-control?
