I'm 18 years old, I had a miscarriage in May and shortly after that I got prescribed Necon 1/35. I was on it for 5 months and every month was different for me. My period would either last 1 day, I wouldn't get it, or I would get it 2-3 times that month. I just got switched to lutera and I took my first pill this morning. I've heard you can gain weight on it, but is it because nobody is watching what their eating? Or eating without exercise? I'm 5'4" and 135lbs. It took me a long time to lose weight I was almost 200lbs, I got into sports and lost weight, I'm working on 10 more pounds so I really hope there is ways around this mysterious lutera weight gain! Can anybody give me helpful hints when taking lutera and the how-to's to avoid that horrible weight gain?!
