My OBGYN put me on this and said most people lose weight on this pill . I knew I had to give this pill at least 3 months to see if it worked or if I liked it . I've been on this pill for about maybe 4 months & I get the worst headaches , I have abdominal pain even a week before I'm suppose to get my period . then I wont get my period and that pressure pain will stay for a week or two and it is so uncomfortable . I don't know if I'm gaining weight from a job change or because of this pill . I've tried a few different pills but haven't found one I have loved .
