Avatar f tn I am putting on weight after i have marina IUD. My periods ended up on just spotting and no more regular bleading. I also have hair growth under my chin. I am planning to get rid of this IUD. Please help me if any one else having this kind of issues. Any other suggations for birth control.
Avatar f tn Could this be caused by the birth control? I exercise daily and still have problems with losing weight. I dont know what to do?
Avatar f tn she lost a dramatic amount of weight while she was on it. so it is defiantly true that you can lose weight while on the depo.
Avatar n tn I'm sure I've seen a post with this question before, but I can't find it. I'm wanting opinions on birth control after baby is born. I have less than 8 weeks to decide! I'm 99.9% sure this will.be our last one, but don't want to have my tubes tied. I want the option to change my mind even though I'm sure we won't. I just don't want to take that away therefore I don't want to get pregnant again so what is the best birth control?
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?

511985 tn?1227778153 I was just switched birth control. First off I hate being on BC cuzit makes me gain weight. Well I wason ortho tri cylen (reg and lo) for a year and it made my period very heavy. I ran out of pills and decided to stop taking them. I started to lose some weight :).
Avatar n tn Thats good to hear. Im 3wks waiting for my 6wk check-up & im plannning to get implanon as my birth control. Ihope idnt gain weight either. In 3wks ive lost 7lbs & ihope ikeep on losing some more iwanna weigh 110-115.
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 f tn I'm having issues with hair loss. After having my first baby in dec of 2007, I got on the birth control shot(Deprovera) & things where going pretty good til I STOPPED the shot, now my hair is falling out. I mean major hair loss all over my head(mostly around the egdes & back)! My last shot was back in mid April. I've been off it (the shot) for about 10 weeks now. Guess I'm in the clearing-out phase. What is going on? Is this normal? How long will it last? Will I go bald????
Avatar f tn I didnt like it. I lost 10 lbs when i was only 100 at the time and i bled the whole 3 months. But not everyone has the same reaction.
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......
902536 tn?1326914250 I gained almost 50 pounds while on the depo shot (I took it for almost 5 years). I had a HORRIBLE time trying to lose weight while on it. Then, I finally went off it January 08. By May, I had lost 45 pounds, without really trying very hard. There is also a website that I started using after awhile that is called ***********.net.
Avatar f tn Mommies what's the best birth control would u recommend? It will be my first time on birth control.I'm about to have my 2nd child and don't want anymore for awhile. I am 23 yes old .
7019649 tn?1396792517 I was on the patch, ortho evra, it worked good I guess, I didn't end up pregnant again until I quit using it, I believe I gained weight on it though, its one of the side effects but I seem to be prone to gaining weight every time I'm on birth control.
Avatar f tn t get my period while on it. Some people gain weight from the shot, I actually lost weight on it so I think it all depends on the person. There's a lot of different options so you can always talk to your doctor and see what they say.
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 s always a chance, a slim one though. It really all depends on what u want out of the birth control. I suggest u read up on all the different types, & talk your choice over with your doctor to find one best for you.
Avatar m tn In part yes it will help you lose weight or just control but it will not be the main source for losing weight. For people like us its one of the perks of birth control unlike for others. Good luck with the Ortho Tri-Cyclen I hope works for you in all female aspects.
Avatar f tn I was on depo before and hated it. The mini and the regular birth control pill were pretty good just a lot of nausea in the beginning but it eventually goes away.
Avatar f tn Same here.
