I am looking for a bc that wont make me gain weight and I am wondering if this is the way to go!
Any birth control could make you gain weight. That doesn't mean that any of them will. Its the hormones.
It will only make you gain weight if you eat a lot and sit around and not be active all the time. I've had nexplanin for a year now and I've gained weight only because I have a tight schedule and I eat a lot. I mean, don't get me wrong, the birth control itself can make you gain atleast three pounds or so, but other than that, it's all up to you. It will help to increase your sexual activity with your partner for some burn of calories and exercise.
