    Whenever I've spoken to a doc about weight gain on the pill they always said it would only be a pound or two and that it was normal and would soon. On the flip side you can take pill packets back to back and have no period - check with your doc it's safe but I did it for ten years and still had 3 kids in between apparently the break is more for psychological reasons - and I suspect this would greatly reduce the negative effect of peroids when doing lt.

    I meant to add the weight gained would soon go and you return to your normal weight x

    I'm just thinking my periods are all over the place with my weight loss....

    Always thought it was my implant that stopped them but i think it was actually my weight!!!

    But at least on the pill i would know when it was coming!!! Its doing my head in... this is my third implant and i think i may just need a change!!!

    Hey Dee, Are you on the implanon implant, progesterone only synthetic or are you on something else?

    I'm on the implanon implant and I haven't had periods regularly (In the conventional meaning of the word)
    If its the progesterone only then it's being balanced out by the oestrogen stored in the fat cells, because implanon still lets your lining build up but doesn't release an egg, and you get the same kind of 'mucous plug' as pregnancy, so after a while the plug will remain thick and will inhibit bleeding in periods. When in birth, a positive feedback system will mean oestrogen will build up and induce laybour by disolving that plug. But since you've lost alot of weight, it's probably going to bleed all over the place for that reason.
    And you might find the pill won't help that either if you don't go for the combined pill. But I'm not a doctor and this is only gathered from A Level biology :eek:
    Go have a chat with them first, although if there isn't going to be a change then I'd stick with the implant to remove the possibility of forgetting to take the pill.

    I know how that feels :( I'm usually on a 3 months off 1 month on cycle but that's completely gone to crap now I've started, I'm not sure when it's coming.
    Just remember, a true gentleman loves his woman every day of the month! :p
