Birth Control and Weight Gain
| cks
I have been taking Viorele birth control since May 15, 2014 and gained about 7 pounds of weight. Not sure if it is water or fat or a combination of both. I have always been very fit and eat very clean. My typical breakfast is an egg white scramble with quinoa and I eat very little. For lunch I have white meat chicken and vegetables and for dinner usually fish (talapia) and some kind of salad. I also work out about 4 times a week. Since I have taken Viorele, I can't seem to control my weight. I watch in horror is my weight increases about 2 pounds per month. I am thinking of getting OFF of the Viorele. I am NOT taking it for birth control, but rather taking it for severe mood swings and heart palpatations during the week prior to my period. I am going to try and get off of the Viorele because I don't like that i have gained weight while on it.
