Birth Control

My doc is putting me on BC to regulate my period so in 6 months I can start trying to get pregnant. At the same time I want to lose weight so I can be healthy for the pregnancy. What BC is best at not making you gain too much weight?

  • Yaz is amazing, I have been on it for almost a year and I gained no weight on it.

  • I've been told that the vaginal ring is the least likely to have weight gain side effects. I too had to go on BC to regulate my periods, but that was years before the ring was available. Your doctor should be able to give you the statistics about the different avenues.
