Birth Control?

I've seen a lot of people mention birth control when asking about a persons diet plan. What problems does being on birth control bring? It's been awhile since I read DANDR and I'm on Microgestin Fe1/20, going off birth control is not an option for me. Will this cause stalls?

It may. I find it easier to lose weight now that I'm off birth control. But, You know what really packs on weight? Being preggers . Luckily that can't happen to me while I'm single unless I'm blessed with immaculate conception.

There is no way around it. Just have to deal with the slower losses. Good luck.

Yes, adding more hormones can slow down weight loss, but that doesn't make it impossible. I'm on straight-through birth control pills and have been for years.

Thank you for the responses ladies.

So why does it stall weight loss exactly?

I started taking it for it's androgen-supressing uses, because my body was creating too much. I've LOVED the side effects of thinner body hair, lighter periods (mine were a nightmare before) and more hormonal balance.
