This is my understanding of BC pills, please correct me if I am wrong. They release a hormone that makes your body "think" it is pregnant so it will not ovulate. So being on birth control is physiologically the same as the beginning of a pregnancy.
Both of my OB-GYNs have told me that it is normal for your body to start storing some extra fat when you are first pregnant, like it is preparing for what is to come. They said it is normal for women to gain 3-5 pounds the first couple of weeks of pregnancy even though eating and exercising routines stay the same. I have also read this same information in many pregnancy books.
It would make sense that when using BC pills your body reacts the same way and begins to store fat for what is thought to be a pregnancy. Then month after month, year after year of this that 3-5 pounds really starts to add up. ***Continued
