I have heard about gaining weight while going on the pill, but not about going off. I suppose your hormones could just be wacky though. Still, I’d call your doctor and ask about it. At the very least she can tell you if other people have experienced similar things.

I haven’t heard that before.  I was on a low estrogen pill for 11 years and did not gain more than a couple of pounds (which I attribute to being married and not watching what I eat as carefully).  How much are you gaining?  The only unexplained weight increase issues I’ve heard are related to thyroid issues (disclaimer: not even slightly a dr.).

I was on Yasmin for about 5 years.  I gained about 8 pounds within a few months of starting Yasmin, and I gained about 10 pounds right after quitting Yasmin.  I didn’t change my eating/exercising in either case.  Sorry if this discourages you.  🙁
