Can birth control pills help you lose weight?
It is a common question and one of the greatest myths about the pill.
While some women seem to gain weight on the pill, research has shown no association between weight gain and birth control.
Also, some women may experience water retention.
This effect can often be reduced by switching to a lower dose pill.

Does Yasmin make you lose weight?
Does Yasmin cause weight gain? Yasmin doesn’t make you put on weight – some studies done before Yasmin was approved actually showed a small amount of weight loss when people first started it. On the other hand, there’s no proof linking the contraceptive pill and weight gain.
Can birth control speed up metabolism?
