Red face Diane bcp and huge, huge weight gain !

I was on Diane bcp for 8 months and I gained approximately 80lbs while on it. I am not joking. When I stopped it and did nothing different to my eating and exercise pattern I stopped gaining weight. It was wonderful for my skin (no pimples) and it aslo helped with my exessive body hair (I have polycystic ovaries), but I was wondering if anyone else out there experienced such a huge weight gain.

Re: Diane bcp and huge, huge weight gain !

i was in ortho tri cyclen about 4 years ago and then switched to the patch. I gained about 50lbs and i know that i was eating right and getting enough excercise. i was a lifeguard, so i was constantly swimming and i don't eat red meat, or pork and i love all veggies, so that's what i ate all the time. i don't take any meds at all, but once i started birth control, i just kept gaining. i then went off of it for about 1 year, and my i stopped gaining, but it is really difficult to lose all of this now. but i do work on it by going to the gym 3/4 times a week and really watch what i eat and how many calories i put in my mouth. i'm now on a necon 1/35 and i'm slowly getting my weight down.
