Getting fat on Birth control :(

I stoped bc pill and had no idea when my period was going to start. Well I started Feb. 14. My wedding is April 16. I started back for the porpose of re routing my period (under dr instruction). Well in 1 week I have gained 7 lbs. I don't want to be on my period at my wedding, but can't afford to get fat before then either. Dress final fitting March 11.

Anyone have any ideas?

(Fiance had a vsectomy so I don't need bc for the purpose of bc)

  • Stop taking birth control, and stop trying to control nature.....that would be my advice...and enjoy your wedding...

  • That sucks so much!

    If you're not on it because of preventing pregnancy could you make go off until after the wedding? Also, maybe a lot of the weight gain is water weight. IDK, my best friend says that she gains tons of weight on the pill but I never had that problem (well, I've gained weight while on the pill but that wasn't the reason why my butt got bigger, lol)
