Question Weight gain & The Pill

Have most of you noticed you gained weight when you started taking the pill? I started taking the pill a year ago and have probably gained about 10 pounds. I work out and eat pretty good (most of the time ). I know most doctors say that the pill doesn't cause you to gain weight but my friends that have taken also say they gained weight. I have recently come off the pill because my husband and I are TTC. Have any of you experienced weight loss when coming off of the pill??? I really hope so because I am supposed to be in a wedding in month and I don't know if my dress is going to fit!

Since it's just 10 pounds of weight gain, it should come off pretty easily. It sounds like water weight, which usually comes off after stopping the pill. However, you may have to work at it a little bit by tweaking your diet and exercise program.
