The Pill and Weight Loss?

I've lost almost 5 lbs in the past week or so, but I haven't changed my diet or amount of physical activity at all. The only recent change is that I changed from taking The birth control pill Yaz to Yasmin almost 2 months ago. I changed because I was still getting breakthrough bleeding on Yaz after 6 months, so my doctor changed me to Yasmin, which has a higher dosage of Estrogen. Is there a link between the birth control pill and weight loss? And would this present itself two months after beginning one with a higher amount of estrogen?

You can either gain, loose or have no change when taking or switching BCP. It depends on each persons chemistry.

Yasmin has a diuretic in it- it will help you keep your water weight off. I lost almost 10 pounds while on Yasmin- but watch your hair, I lost lots of that too.

Re: The Pill and Weight Loss?

Yeah, the main reason i switched to Yasmin was because the gyno told me it helps you keep the weight off. So that may very well be the case. If you have been on it for 2 months its just about that time for your body to be almost completely adjusting so it makes sense.
It never hurts to smile :-D
