About the contreceptive pill?

Does the contraceptive pill (mini pill) estrogen pill make you gain weight and eat more? I’m only on it cause I can’t cope with having a woman’s normal cycle but I’m wondering if it’s holding me back and if I should actually go off it. Can I fight the battle of weight loss better without it? Or is it possible with it?

It only affects your weight as much as you let it hun. It will increase your appetite but if you're watching what you eat, then it shouldn't be a problem.

I had the implant put in in Nov and have still managed to lose over half a stone (Inc an Xmas gain and a LOT of faffing about!)

I think it depends on each individual. I went on the mini pill a few years ago and I struggled with my weight and made me put on. I agree mayb u should talk 2 ur doctor and ask for their advise as they'll know what's best xx
Thank you so much everyone. I am going to talk to my doctor.

But if I can help it I will still take it cause it's just too stressful with out it. Not taking it would probably do more damage then good.

Thanks for your support and thanks kirstabubble that makes a lot of sense I will try not to let it affect me!

I have been on P.O.P. for a year and a half or so and it has increased my appetite which has made losing weight more difficult for me as I struggle with will power at the best of times as it is.

I read an article once that said women only put weiht on when their on the pill because the majority of time their in a comfortable relationship where they dont feel the pressure to look good, i think this is deffently right because when i was in a relationship for 2 years i put on 2 stone! and i ws on the pill, however i lost a stoneand a half last year still being on the pill, so i think it doesnt really matter its how your feeling at the time xx
