Off BCP, Weight Gain or Loss?


Hey all,

Just wondering if you guys gained or lost weight after getting off of your birth control pills. I know it's different for everyone, but just seeing what happened to who.

Gained heaps but PCOS was a factor.

I was regularly gaining weight on my BCP... but when I came off them I suddenly gained 8-9 pounds out of the blue... it was very upsetting

dang, I'm hoping my body holds off on gaining because I gained weight when I went on them but that was 17 years ago so I don't remember much about it. I stopped my pills a week ago today and 4 days later I weighed in at Weight Watchers a few lbs heavier than I thought, but now I'm down 5 lbs less. I have been eating better, too so it's hard to tell why the fluctuation. Thanks for the replies!

I was on the pill for 12 years. Just went off it Nov. 15th 2017. I gained about 3-4 pounds in the past 3 months that I got off the pill, which wasn't too bad, not noticeable. I did just rejoin the gym though to try and shed those extra pounds off
