I've read in a few magazines that being on birth control makes it much harder for a woman to lose weight. Does anyone have any experience with this? Are you on birth control and able to lose weight? Did you go off birth control and saw more weight loss? Thanks!
I can't lose 100 pounds, but I can lose 10 pounds 10 times.
One for every 5 lbs lost!!
First ten pounds lost 1/30/14!
Second ten pounds lost 2/23/14!
ive been on birth control for the past 12 years, although different kinds...at first it was the Ortho Evra patch and then various pills mostly dictated by what my insurance would cover
I can lose weight on birth control but I HAVE TO watch what I eat very closely, I HAVE TO exercise and I HAVE TO watch my carbs and sugars.....if I fail to do any of those (and sometimes even if I do all of that well) I will not lose weight no matter what
all of my weight lost on my ticker has been while on birth control pills but it's a definite struggle
I take Marvelon for about 3 months at a time, then I stop for a week. I've been on b/c for years for endometriosis and I've been able to lose. But I think every woman is different. I've had friends who say they've gained weight on the pill, not so for me.
I started again a couple of months ago, right at Christmas. Because I indulged quite a bit then, my weight did go up, but it dropped down and I continued to lose at more or less the rate I expected. It does make me FEEL kind of bloated, though.
