Birth Control board


I was on Nordette for about 8 months (until my insurance just stopped covering it and I've now been on Levlen for a week). During that time I gained about 15 pounds without changing anything. In fact, I have stayed the same weight my whole adult life until I started that pill, and it's really bothersome. I have a very thin frame, so 15 pounds really shows! I'm curious to hear if anyone on Levlen can share their experiences so I know whether to expect to continue gaining weight or possibly lose some. Thanks!
