Re: Loestrin 24 FE - weight gain

I have been on Loestrin24 for 6 months and my weight has gone from 132 to 150 lbs! I have always been skinny and now I have all this flab and a gut although I work out for 45-60 minutes, every day! The weight gain is very frustrating as it has caused me to have joint pain. I am not happy with this pill. I switched from 1/20 Loestrin to this to get lighter periods because I have huge cyst in my uterus-the periods are about 3 days and very light, but I'd rather weigh less. I have used birth control pills for 25 years and have never experienced weight gain like this! I am going to my doctor this week to ask for another alternative. Any suggestions?
