  • Personally I never gained weight. I've heard it can cause weight gain but I don't think it's proven yet...and obviously it doesn't happen to everyone. My weight always stayed the same on or off of it.

  • I think it is different for every woman. I personally have never gained weight when I was on the pill. But that is just me.
