  • this is a new one on me and I study hormones and birth control etc. What I do know is associated with weight is it tends to be more difficult to get pregnant the more obese you are. As for birth control not working, I've not read anything on that. I guess it would depend on the type of birth control too though because estrogen is stored in fat cells, which is why it is more difficult to conceive with added weight. You got me wondering now. I'm anti BC for myself personally though.

  • I'm sure a doctor would prescribe the correct pill and dosage for the patient
