I always hear that birth control pills make you gain weight, and I've never been on them so I just go by what I've heard. If its a myth, then why do people gain weight on them? Please help! I need a bc for cysts without gaining weight, I've struggled with weight for years and im finally where I wanna be.
Some women do gain a little weight but it is usually maybe 5-8 lbs but if you are careful and watch your diet you wont gain. The hormones tend to make some women feel hungry (and some women get some fluid retention) but as long as you watch your diet and exercise you should not gain any weight.
