loosing weight while on birth control

I've read a lot of things about how many people gain weight while on Yaz, but I'd like to know if it is possible to lose weight on it?

I'm 60 pounds heavier than I'd like to be.. so I started a diet today. I plan to eat healthier and excersice more often... will being on Yaz affect the results of my diet?

  • When I was on this bc I actually gained weight (not to put a damper on things) BUT every woman is different I had a friend who also took this and she lost weight.(she was obese. I don't know if that was connected to it though) I just use natural family planning now...birth control makes me crazy lol

  • I'm not on Yaz, but I'm on BC, and I can tell you that the first couple of months I did gain weight. i was obese anyway, so this was kinda a problem for me. But recently, I've been dieting and exercising, and have lost about 10 lbs, so I'd say you can probably lose on Yaz, too.
