Discussions that mention levlite

Birth Control board


Yasmin and Yaz have a diuretic in it so that can help you loose water weight but not fat. It's trial and error with BCP what works for one person may make another gain weight. I was on Aleese for years. It's a good pill but I had more weight lose on Desogen. I got off Desogen cause I had sever migraines.

Loestrin FE 24 is in the same low dose category as Aleese, Aviane 28, Loestrin 1/20, Micrette, Levlite. I gained 22 pounds on Loestrin FE 24 and stopped having periods. Micrette and Aleese I had no problems with. Orth Cept is the name brand for both. I am now loosing hair from Orth Cept where I didn't loose any on Mircette. I did on Aleese and Desogen. All the pills are 21day pills except for Loestrin FE 24 those are 24 day.

You just have to try them and see that happens. There is nothing that is 100% for sure going to make you loose weight or not gain weight while taking them. The Yaz and Yasmin have a diuretic in it but I've heard of people gaining weight while on them. Hair loss and acne are side effects too that ladies may or may not get while on them.

I was on Desogen for years and thought my hair loss was normal. That's when I joined the Health Boards and found out BCP can cause hair loss. While on Loestrin FE 2 I didn't loose one strand of hair. Back on Ortho Cept for 9 days and hair is falling out again.

Good Luck
