  • no, they usually make you gain weight if anything. Unless you are on some new birth control that's supposed to help with your weight.

  • nope. In highschool I started BCP & gained about 10lbs.... After having dd at age 24 I got on depo for about 1yr. and my weight slowly crept up even though I was working out to lose pregnancy weight.. Even now (dd is 3.5 now) Im fighting my weight & am only 10lbs lighter from when I was 9mo pregnant!!!

  • lost weight from just being on them? No. But I have lost weight while on them just by cutting out soft drinks (of course, that's when I was managing a restaurant and downing 16 oz mountain dews was a common occurrence!).
