Question going off the pill

I was wondering about whether anyone who gained weight going on the pill lost it after going off. And, how much and how fast and did you exercise as well. I just went off the pill two weeks ago and I just wanted to know what to expect with my weight. thanks

I didn't any gain weight...and I sure did feel much much better and healthier!!! It is amazing how much better I felt after I stopped putting all those unnatural hormones in my body. And my mood swings totally improved, too!!!

When I was on the pill I looked great, my breasts increased in size, and I looked great in a bikini. When I went off the pill, I lost the weight there, I still didn't look bad, just not as full a bustline. The pill also cleared up any blemishes I used to get on my face.

I just finished my first month of BCP for a hormone imbalance. I think I felt better with the imablance! I'm not taking them anymore. Would rather try the natural route, i.e. less side effects, etc.

I am kind of into fitness and I have found out that estrogen causes fat to collect in your hip, *** and thigh area (lucky us). I am going off of the pill tomorrow and I really do think it makes sense that I will lose some of that fat after I am off of the pill since I will not have as much estrogen in me. I have been hearing more and more that being on the pill can really start to "screw" you up.

I was hoping to loose weight when I went off the pill a while ago but to no avail. Good luck. Nothing some good old fashion exercise can't cure!!!!

I went off of the nuva ring in August. Within 2 days I lost 3 lbs and also my body looked completely different. You can actually notice the water weight gone. This also happened to me when I went off of the pill many years ago.
