I am on BCPs for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. I was on Yasmin which is supposed to help with weight loss and I gained weight from it and the side effects after 3 months never went away. I just switched to OrthoTriCyclene Lo on Sunday. I was on this one before and gained from it. I'm sticking to the diet very strictly and drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Any one have any suggestions to avoid water retention/weight gain from the pill? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've been on Yaz since July....I do retain water at certain times, but just try to drink/eat a lot of salt-free....(seltzer, fresh vegetables)....I haven't gained weight except in my breasts....I'm a VERY full C instead of regular and they are sore during my period.
exercise and less white carbs seem to work for me.

I've been on Ortho, but not the low one.. and I seemed to LOSE from it, go figure. I would say drink more water to get rid of water retention, also I find drinking peppermint tea seems to help me not retain water.
