    My doctor said it was possible but I don't think I have.

    I didn’t notice a change in weight, but could depend on birth control and each individual.

    A little. I feel almost less bloated now than I did being on them.

    I'm going to go *on* BC pretty soon and I'm nervous about putting on weight. Ugh.

    I had a friend who lost around 30 lbs after going off. She went on years ago (and gained weight quickly) and went off a year ago when she broke up with her ex. It seriously is night and day for her.

    Never gained weight because of BC, just because I like to eat a lot Smiley tongue

    I didn't notice much difference in my weight, but my skin went bonkers for a bit. I had to change my soaps and face-washing routine. Cramps did get worse, too.
