One for the ladies...

Anyone find the pill interferes with weight loss? I take microgynon and had stopped for a while but want to restart, but I'm afraid that it might cause problems with weight loss. I think I may have heard in the past that it makes you gain weight, but not sure. Any thoughts/experiences?

When I was on the pill I asked my doctor to put me on something that doesn't make you gain weight. The one I was on didn't cause any weight gain at all. While all women are different, I think your doctor will know which one is least likely to make a difference in your weight/weight loss.

I was put on microgynon by my gynaecologist for hormone regulation not contraception, so I think my choices might be narrower, since they differ slightly. I guess I'll try it and see...if I stall or gain I'll ask him for advice.
