it's a little too late for this...

So I am watching the evening news and in the health segment they are talking about birth control pills and being overweight. They said that if you are overweight the pill is not too effective as it's a horomone that will get trapped in the fat cells, or something along those lines. Needless to say, they said that you are more likely to have a pill baby if you are overweight and on the pill. NICE TO KNOW NOW~!! Just thought I would mention it. In other news, BH's are so lovely when they continue all day. They don't hurt, just a tight feeling. I am back to being an emotional wreck. I hope it doesn't continue for the next 7 weeks.

I was warned that there might be problems with the pill when I went on it because I was overweight. They mentioned increased risk of thrombosis and HBP (which I got on the combined pill). Presumably they have only just realised that there is a problem with its effectiveness in overweight women otherwise they would have warned about that too.

I think they just discovered this. I have never had HBP or high anything for that matter. I am slightly overweight but the news said it has something to do with your BMI and how the horomone gets trapped in the excess fat cells in large women.
