Actually I was on Ortho-Cyclen for about 5 months and tried to diet and just couldn't lose anything. I stopped taking the pill and in 3 months I had lost 25 pounds (going from 155 to 130 at 5'7").... I think that stopping the pill helped with the first 10 or so and then I think that the initial results being so quick - I was motivated to stay on my diet/exercise.... Depending which pill you are on, and depending how it affects your body..... I felt bloated the whole time I was on the pill and just hated taking it....
