Weight Loss board


Plantlover, I am in the exact same boat you are. I have been on Ortho-Tri Cyclen for the past 4 years, but since I got married I have gained a lot of weight, probably at least 20-30 pounds. A few months ago I got switched to a generic form of Ortho Tri Cyclen called Trinessa, and I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I started working out back in August, and just within the last month I have actually lost weight (10 pounds to date). So, maybe see about the generic form? Dunno if it will help, like everyone's saying, everyone's body reacts differently to medication.

Thank you for sharing that information. I will definetley talk to my doctor about that. It's just so hard not be able to lose 20 lbs especially when I have tried everything. I even got blood work done for my thyroid to make sure my metabolism and everything is working fine. And sure enough it is. So this is my last resort, try to change the birth control. Thanks again FrogGurl. ;)
