Weight gain on cerazette? Other side effects


Hiya

Okay so i used to be on microgynon then ovranette for about 9 years. I did gain weight at the start, not sure if due to just age. Lol. Anyway came off ovranette last year and gotpregnant and only gained about 1 stone 2lb which about 3lbs arelingering, the rest literally dropped off. Now i started back on the pill microgynon in nov and have stopped taking it the weekend due to headaches. Doc gave me cerazette to try which I am gonna wait til my first af after withdrawl bleed to take BUT I am concerned about weight gain etc. I am 5ft 3 and 11st 5lbish so need to reduce weight anyway! I was wondering if anyone had weight gain on this? Doc just said about spots and periods could be longer but lighter.

Xx

Can't say I ever gained weight on it... Went back on it when lo was 8 weeks and I have been dieting so lost a stone and half on it... Long as you don't eat silly stuff it should be fine!

I didn't have weight gain but it made me so depressed and I literally didn't stop bleeding. After doing some research online I found a lot of people got depression on it, even some suicide attempts. I ended up on loestrin 20 and loved it.

I bled for two weeks and was a hormonal mess so I stopped taking it. I'm on Cilest now and having the same bleeding problems but none of the moodiness. Didn't gain weight on either pill.

These things are different for everyone though and all you can really do is see how you get on with it and change if it's not the right one for you.

Honestly hun- when I was on cerazette, it improved my anxiety and depression- i was also dieting like a PP said, and managed to loose nearly a stone in 2 weeks on slimming world.

I was on it to lighten my periods, which didn't happen LOL, but because I was convinced it decreased my appetite and aided my weight loss and I wasn't feeling crap all the time, i stayed on it.

I have every intention of going back on it when the twins are here
