Have an almost unbearably heavy period every month, or weigh about 8 lbs less?
That's my current dilemma. I went back on the pill about four months ago, because my periods had become BRUTAL. It was so heavy for the first day or two that I would soak through a super plus tampon sometimes in less than an hour. It was so bad that I would occasionally stay home from work on the first day - either that or spend the majority of my work day in the bathroom, and really, what would be the point?
So I went back on the pill. It wasn't so much to prevent pregnancy, because my fiance and I don't have a super active sex life anyway AND he doesn't trust the pill enough to have sex without a condom - so really, that was the furthest thing from my mind when I went back on the pill.
But I very quickly packed on the pounds after going back on it - a side-effect I didn't have when I had been on it before. I've been struggling to lose weight as it is for the past while (I'm not overweight but I want to be in the best shape possible for our wedding next year). I've gained about 8 lbs since going on the pilll. It doesn't sound like a lot, and it probably wouldn't bother me THAT much, except for the fact that the majority of my pants don't fit anymore!
Sigh... this is more of a rant than anything - I know I'd be miserable if I went off the pill to lose the weight and had to deal with those heavy periods again... but I'm just curious what you ladies think? What would you prefer?
