Starting next week, I'm going on this pill but I'm having second thoughts. I'm 18 and this is my first time on birth control pills. I've heard stories from people who have been on this pill, both positive and negative. I'm about 5'7, near 130 lbs. I eat alot and I never gain anything but I'm afraid that if I take these pills, I'll gain weight. I also have my senior prom coming too and I don't want to be chubby in the pictures! Please help me with comments!
Im 19 and have been taking the pill for under a month, and have experienced mild changes (spotting right after period, which will probably go away or I may need to up the dosage on the pill). Look at it this way, if you are sexually active, you need to be on the pill to be cautious. Even though your prom is coming up, if u notice minor weight gain, talk to your doctor or just stop taking the pill (letting your dr know) and use another form of protection such as a condom ect. Not many people experience harsh side effects, so dont be scared! Good luck though!
