  • I can't say for sure, but to me that just doesn't sound right. Either you have the hormones or you don't. That would be like saying bigger girls take longer for birth control pills to become effective because they have hormones in them too. I honeslty don't know but just seems like a crazy thing to me.

  • Not that kind of pee test....but if you are over weight and drug tested....drugs store in fat cells so they will show up longer. I think....I have heard this but never actually researched it or needed to know for sure! lol
