    I need to gain weight

    Does anyone know about any bc pills that would help me gain weight, and clear up my skin too, if no one knows about the skin, then maybe they can help me with the gaining weight question. Please answer, because I will start taking one soon, but I need to be sure about it.

    Each pill works differently on each woman so it is hard to say which pill will make you gain weight. A lot of women gain weight on all diferent pills, I have never gained a pound while on bc. I am on ortho tri cyclen lo and it cleared up my skin but I have heard others say it made theirs worse. You really need to tell your doctor what you are looking for in a bc pill. It may take a couple of tries to find the right pill for your needs.

    Want to gain weight - get the Depo shot! I have a doctor friend who had a nanny that tried EVERYTHING to gain weight. Finally, the doctor gave her a Depo shot and it worked like a charm! I don't know how it will affect your skin, though.

    Don't just use the pill to gain weight. Weight gain doesn't even happen with many women.

    If you really want to gain weight, take protein shakes.
