Losing Weight After Birth Control

I am stopping my micro-pill(Jolivette) birth control pill. It caused me to gain 30 pounds over 90 days and also makes my face, chest, and back break out in cystic acne. My hair has turned super oily, and falls out very easily. I'm also very down and just feel like a hermit. I feel disgusted with how I look. I exercise, and have always eaten very healthy. Never had weight issues in my entire life. I have endometriosis, so that is the reason for my bc. But it doesn't help that anyways. I've been on it for a year.

I'm wondering if it was easy to lose weight after stopping birth control, and how long did it take for the weight to start to come off? What did you do to lose the weight?

I lost all my baby weight in 6 weeks but gained 10 pounds when I went back on the pill. I switched brands and lost it in about 2 months.

I didn't do anything. I gained 30 with both boys and lost it in about 6 weeks. The bc switch worked itself out. I didn't do anything different.
