Re: Birth Control Affecting Weight
The spike in appetite is only temporary. Most of the side effects should subside in 2-3 months. If they don't, then you should switch. Until then, you just have to tuff it out. The same thing happened to me, appetite-wize, and it went away after a couple weeks. I maybe gained 2 lbs if at all. The most important thing is to not over-eat.
Side effects suck, I hear ya. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">
