360318 tn?1340393363 I had recently put on weight before all of this happened and I am working on continuing to lose weight. I have now lost 10 pounds so far and plan on losing another 30 or more. Before I gained the weight, I had always had issues with having a normal menstrual cycle. So my question is should I get on birth control? How will this effect the way I act and the way I feel?
Avatar m tn My weight loss is not much yet, but I was wondering if taking these birth control pills is actually the reason for my weight loss? I know birth control pills are supposed to help with hormonal imbalances, so would taking them also enable me to finally start losing weight, despite the fact that so many women say birth control pills cause them to GAIN weight?
Avatar f tn I'm due in a few weeks. I don't know what to do about my birth control I had Mirena before and had a miscarriage. My doctor still wants me to try mirena but I also had a hard time losing weight and I felt like it kept me from keeping the weight off. The only thing I liked was not getting my period!! Any other suggestions besides mirena?
Avatar f tn I blamed it on the birth control pills but I stopped using the pills 3 weeks ago and I have not lost any weight. I do weights, cardio and pilates. What could be the problem? I'm losing my mind here.

Avatar f tn I used Ortho tri cyclen lo, birth control pills, if you're good with them, i really recommend them, they're low dose of hormones, and have very little side effects, always on time periods, etc. I'm really good about taking pills so I loved them!

6838479 tn?1390502941 Birth control is something that works so individually to each woman. Pills didn't help be become regular because I have the world's mosy irregular period. My first attempt at pills made me gain weight like crazy and I was very active! When I was a little older I started them again and didn't have any side effects other than my normal irregular periods that were now somewhat regular. I considered going on them again in august but then I got pregnant in October!
Avatar f tn What birth control method are you ladies are using after your pregnancy?? Advice?? I have no clue on what would workout better for myself...
Avatar f tn Oh and after baby #2 arrives my birth control responsibility is over and my husband will be getting a vasectomy. Less invasive, less risky, better success rates than a tubal ligation.

514428 tn?1287598456 I was a long term birth control, but one I can could on!! There is so many things that can go wrong with this IUD that it really scares me. Does anyone else have the Mirena? I don't care about bleeding or anything (still haven't had a period since I breastfeed)...but I was wondering if the cramping is SO severe as woman say it is. I know woman who love it and others hated it... Why couldn't he just make my life simple and tie my tubes!! AHHHHH......

Avatar f tn I hust started a new pack of birth control pills this month. I used to take tri-lo-sprintec tablet generic for (ortho tri-cyclen LO) for the past 6 six years, but in Michigan we do not have it in generic form anymore. Therefore this month i started taking Eth estradi/norgestimate and I feel very lazy and sleepy all the time and I see that I have been gaining weight. My question is is what I am taking now the same as what I was taking before because that is what the pharmacy told me?
