  • I use a diaphragm, no hormones no weight gain. It does have its draw backs, the jelly will continue to come out after removing the diaphragm for the day following removal, kind of sucks.

  • I was on a pill called Lutera for many years, never gained, and was able to lose weight. I am now on Seasonique, which I LOVE because of the no period for 3 months thing, plus when I did get my period it was very light, but it made me gain about 8 pounds. I am working my butt off and have lost 5 of the pounds so far.

  • Orthotrycyclin lo didn't make me gain wait when I was on it back in highschool/ college. The regular ortho did.
