Thumbs down Bloating & BCP HELP!!!!!

I've been on Estrostep for the past year and the only complaint i have is major bloating, i'm very skinny but since i've been on this pill my stomach always looks bloated, someone even saw me in a swimsuit and asked if i was pregnant - very embarrasing, considering the rest of my body hasn't gained weight

What pills can i take to alleviate this horrible condition? I also cut out eating turkey and limited my soda intake to diet coke once a day and i drink a ton of water since i go to the gym

Talking

Has cutting out the turkey and soda helped your bloating or not?

If not, then I would suggest that there is really no magic pill that you can take to cure this. I have to say that if this has occurred since taking the BCP, then this is the cause and you need to investigate either taking a different BCP or stopping it altogether and looking at different methods of contraception totally.

Good luck

Good luck

Are you eating refined foods such as white breads, using white sugar, or eating white rice? That will cuase bloating for sure. What about processed foods? Many processed foods contain alot of sodium and that could cause you to be bloated. I know if I have any of the above I get instant bloat. I hope this helps you.

My diet hasn't changed, but since the birth control pills i noticed major bloat and not just during my period, but all the time.

Aren't there any water pills that are good/safe????
