  • because of the hormones and its unnatural. your body is reacting because it is unknown.

    a lot of women will gain weight when on birth control its normal typically.

  • I gained weight on the pill and the patch.... however, I am on the nuva ring now, and I have actually been losing weight, I don't know if it's just me, but it seems to work in every way possible

  • every persons body reacts differently to birth control. and the hormones are what does it. but even with something with a lot of hormones, one could still NOT gain weight because each persons body handles it differently.
