Anyone gain weight from the mini-pill?

Its a possible side effect, and I've found that now I'm 8 months PP and I have not been losing weight. In fact, as I've been exercising and being more active now this summer I've started to gain a few pounds. I'm really frustrating and wondering if the mini pill is either causing the weight gain or making it harder to loose.

  • Yes. I took it for 6 months and gained half a stone (7lb). I did lose most of it once I came off it again though. Better than the nasties of the estrogen pill mind you! x
