I just took a break from the pill Mercilon which i had been taking since i am 22. I am now 32. It is about 2 months later now and i noticed i am about 7 pounds heavier. Nothing changes in my eating, workout etc.
I thought when you go off the pill you loose weight but not gain? Has this happened to anyone else?

maxfluffy: Everyone is different. I didn’t fluctuate much either on or off. However, I noticed I was MUCH hungrier as soon as I got off birth control…. And craved bad stuff that I normally don’t eat. Fortunately, I was aware of it and still stayed within my calorie range and kept my macro nutrients in check.
Birth control changes your hormones SO drastically that any given woman can gain or lose weight (amongst tons of other side effects), without changing a single other factor of their lifestyle.
