You said you started the bc pills and gaining weight/mood changes about the same time. I think the first step is trying another birth control. I’ve heard of bc pills affecting mood.

Could be a thyroid issue.

I think the amount of stress coupled with the family history and your diet is probably the factor. I definitely would check out with the doctor to get some insight on how to live your life healthier. Also, let you fiance know that if you guys love each other – part of taking care of each other is also making sure the other person is physically taking care of themselves. It’s wonderful he accepts and loves who you are no matter what but in the long run both of your lives will be easier if you’re healthier!

agree with pp and also get your thyroid levels checked! Low thyroid levels can cause weight gain and depression (mood issues)

Also is it possible you have PCOS? That causes rapid weigh gain.

to add: They are MOST common in young (20’s) healthy women.

I think the birth control could have started the problems, since they do mess with your hormones.  Then, stress is absolutely a factor in weight loss, especially for women.  I don’t think anything is “wrong” with you, I think it’s a cycle, you know, feel bad, eat gain weight, more stress, feel bad, eat, gain weight, etc.  It could also be genetic.  I was in GREAT shape and then when I hit 21 it was like I became a different person! lol.  I think all you can really do is get a doctor to check you out and make sure you’re ok as far as cholesterol, Bridal Party and all that and try to make small changes.  Exercise when you can, try to eat more fruits and veggies.  It ain’t easy, but it also takes time.

Sorry if I scared you… I just know those things b/c I had thyriod issues and had mine removed (it was over active)… they’re pretty common these days so it’s not a big thing to worry about, just get it checked & if it’s out of balance start taking the proper medication…. BC can cause your body to need more T4 (thyriod hormone) as well… =)

If it ends up not being thyroid or something else, I would suggest talking to your OB-GYN about your different birth control options.  It’s possible that you are still having the same effects from your current birth control pill, and if you talk to him/her about what you’ve been experiencing, they might be able to recommend something that works better with your body.

Sounds like a thyroid issue.  I believe I am going through the same thing.  Unfortunately, I do not have the insurance to get it checked out.  Good luck!
