I didn't really know where else to post this so here I am Apparently its supposed help you lose weight faster from what I have read. but that is not the case for me... I was on birth control pills to balance my estrogen and testosterone levels for about a year and a half. My weight remained the same during that time, maybe it fluctuated a few pounds here and there, but it was normal. After I got off them for a month or so I started gaining pounds upon pounds in a matter of days, and losing it was not easy either. I'm taking a wild guess and assuming its just the crazy hormone changes causing my body to react retarded. Just curious if anyone might have any ideas as to why this is going on so I can do a little more research. I'm going to see a doctor this Sunday about it.
