How to prevent weight gain on birth control: Is your birth control pill making you gain weight? We can help, watch this video to learn how to prevent weight gain on birth control in easy simple tutorial steps. It is said that weight gain is a common side effect of taking birth control pills. This has been backed up by research, as many women who take oral contraceptives were said to gain extra weight, especially in their hips, thighs, and breasts. However, the weight gain caused by birth control pills is mostly caused by fluid retention, and the amount of weight gain is usually deemed insignificant for most women. This minimal weight gain also often goes away within two to three months. Nevertheless, if you want to avoid the weight gain side effect of oral contraceptives, here are ways on how to prevent weight gain on birth control: http://waysandhow.com/?p=23298 - waysandhow, diy, diy video, how-to ---------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Google+: https://plus.google.com/+waysandhow Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/waysandhow/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/waysandhow/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/waysandhow

Is there a way to stop weight gain with the nexplanon ? I’ve been working out none stop and drinking only water and fruits and salads? Maybe fasting? I’m gonna try this for 2 weeks only drinking water and working out
Rashell Cazares (2 months ago)
I have the nexplanon and its the worst thing ever . Im getting it removed on the 26th of this month . Before getting it i was weighing 118 and now im weighing 130 something in just a year ive gained a lot (im short so you can notice it more) ive been more depressed and a lot of mood swings DO NOT GET IT. I also get my period 2 times a month now with heavy bleeding when i used to get it normally. Also... the other day i was going to go it and literally no jean would fit me they are all tight on me & my favorite shirt wont go in either im so dissappointed can wait to get it off. And for those of you who are tryin to gain weight off it trust me its not the type of gain you want to get. 💆🏼‍♀️

I used to be slim in my high school days, but since college I have been gaining weight, so much so, that I now look bad and everyone around is commenting on my weight. I did try some weight loss programs but honestly could not stick to any for too long, none of them showed results anyway, and my problem is not solved a bit. Please, please can anyone suggest me a good way to lose weight? Thanks in advance.

Estelle, we have just uploaded a new video today on how to lose 10 pounds in 30 days, this may be what you need. See the link in the description.

I’m on the depo and I never changed my eating habits... I’ve always been curvy but I only weighed 120lbs at 5’5” and after a year on the depo I weigh 150lbs despite doing nothing different than I have before I was on depo.... my arms have gotten bigger along with my stomach, hips, and thighs. Jeans that fit me perfectly last year are tights around my thighs... it’s super disheartening. I’ve also been getting very dizzy and am having s lot of bloody noses.... my anxiety has gotten so much worse. My nurse suggested that I get off the depo and despite pregnancy being a risk I think it’s the best choice for me. It’s been super hard to focus because my nerves have been all over the place. Hoping to see some changes by the end of the year
Lilac Liz (1 month ago)
Oasis Smith yes it is a side effect. It’s messed me up a lot and I would suggest finding a better birth control. I’ve been in it for a year and it’s done nothing good for me
Oasis Smith (1 month ago)
I'm on the depo shot too and recently I have been very dizzy is that an actual side effect because my doctor doesn't know what is wrong with me..
Evon Quintana (4 months ago)
Everyone is different, I never had my period with drop and actually lost weight. The pill is what I hated, it caused me to have breakouts on my chin constantly. I now have the nexplanon and I haven’t really noticed weight gain but I have regular periods now and only get a pimple or two when it gets time for my period.

depo shots make you gain hella weight it don't matter what you eat or if you diet I only ate once a day an I was steal gaining hella weight I didn't eat cakes or anything unhealthy so it's definitely the shot birth control weight is so hard to get rid of it's stressful everybody body is different stop saying people is using it as an excuse no it's been proven they even have a law suite in my state on November 14th so alot of us women that has had health problems etc due to the depo shot will be getting paid & a year free of personal training to keep the weight down my doctor the one who took me off my depo shot it nearly almost killed me an the side effect list is horrible it can lead to cancer, permanently stop women from having kids in the future when they are ready an can possibly shut down your organs leading to death why invent something like that id rather just use condoms if I'm gonna be sexually active the side effects is worse than being pregnant noone wants to go through that not to mention hairloss & hair shedding I went from being 134 to 160 in 4 years with no period I've been off the shot for two years now an my period is still not stable sometimes it comes sometimes it don't an when it does it stays on for a week or two or sometimes 3 days it's crazy so no do not get the depo shot ladies
1st klass strawberry (6 months ago)
WaysAndHow It wasn't cause I didn't want to eat I would Just eat that one time in the day an I would be full for the rest of the day I've been off of the shot for two years now so I've lost those 20 pounds that I gained an more actually an my weight really never went higher than the 20 pounds I gained it stayed the same for 4 years I was on it

Jasmine, eating once a day is not healthy, and it will make you gain even more weight.

Who is an idiot who wrote this script?! Shifting the blame on women again? Moron, fruit is the same thing as soda and veggies ate not a substitute for proper nutrition. Counting calories doesn't do jack for you if your hormones dictate to store, not burn. Do you even have education? Go, read a book before claiming that 100% of women who gained weight on pills are just lazy weaklings who pig out on Twinkies and McDonald's. Hormones will always win,ok? This is coming from someone in no form or shape overweight, but I do care about some people who are and you are offending them. Go, eat your pills and see how it works for you, Richard

Wow, are you done?
Buttcheeks Mcgee (9 months ago)
Just stick to the pills ladies The new stuff has more side effects. And with the pill, you can just stop taking them if your body doesn't agree with it If you get stuff implanted in your body, you have to go back to the doctors

I'm hoping that this side effect is due to pure diet and lack of exercise. I have worked really hard to lose over 70 ib I have just started the depo and see this side effect a lot. I'm gonna do all I can to not gain weight!

crazy ally that sounds absolutely terrible, im using it because I keep getting "random extra periods". I am using the pill though, I hope the side affects differ haha

Rosa M first off YOU GO GIRL!!! 105 is amazing congratulations!!! Haha a month seems so long ago! I swear since this comment Iv become a hormonal eating monster!!! I absolutely hate the depo and I'm not going to get the next dose next month. Iv been bleeding throughout and have constant stomach pains which is the reason I started the depo to stop bleeding and pain. I cry constantly and snap at the littlest things! I mean this is just how Iv been but it's been hell and I can't wait till it's out of my system. I hope it works better for you. Ps also have zero energy :/

Honestly I think this is a placebo effect. I've been on the injection for 4 years and the only reason I have gained weight in this time is when I have ate a 12 inch pizza and then half a 16 inch pizza, a whole packet of oreos, 2 slices of cake, a cinnamon roll and Thornton chocolates in ONE DAY and then the next day I ate a Chinese and more cake followed by chocolates. I gained over Halloween for eating around the same amount of food in a 4 day period and Christmas for the same reason. Other times like last year I went down to my lowest weight. I am usually 135 pounds and I'm 5ft9 but went down to 128 pounds last spring due to eating well for a long period of time. It's scientifically impossible to put on this much weight if you are eating well and exercising. I think most of you are using this as an excuse eat well and get moving and you'll loose weight.
solarkey vid (4 months ago)
Well i feel that the pill kinda pushes you to eat unnecessarily... you will notice that if you stop the pill for around 5days ...

kcnewa I've been so scared about gaining weight, it's so stressful. But yeah, I think its been harder to lose weight though. Ive stayed constant for the most part.
kcnewa (2 years ago)
Not everyone gains weight on birth control, its a side effect and it totally depends on what pill you're on and your body. Everybody's different :)
Cecile Zapanta (2 years ago)
Best thing to do is not let these side effects get to your head. Daily exercise. Weights and cardio. Watch what you eat. Don't mess with too much sodium and bad fats. Drink water. Follow that routine and you'll be okay, I'm sure.
Angela L (1 year ago)
You just calmed my mind so much. I'm about to start birth control and I'm terrified. But.... having less period pain and shorter periods would be a dream. So let's just hope and pray I turn out oka y. I watch what I eat, I'm on my feet all day at work and I go on the elliptical for 30 mins a day.and I drink at least 6 20 oz glasses of water a day. So... here goes nothing

Jeannette Mercado I think it just depends on the person y'know. I've been on it for 4 years, workout 3-5 times a week and eat well with a cheat day a week when I will eat anything I want and I still loose weight. Only time I put on weight is if I binge eat for around 4 days and don't exercise. I know people who have lost weight because of the injection.

Rose Ray (2 years ago)
it may be the same for some people but when I'm not on birth control, I can lose weight by eating tons of fat increasing foods along with healthy foods. I have a fairly high metabolism. I'm just watching this in case I gain weight after I get to my ideal weight, if that even happens

Don't calorie restrict!!!!!

you lost me at calory restriction, it is not how many calories you eat, but which ones you eat..
It's both, I knew a girl who was overweight, but she ate sugary fruit and other "healthy" foods all the time!

Am I the only person who managed to stay underweight on birth control? I've taken loads they did not effect my weight in the slightest nor did they bloat me
Zikia Palmer (1 year ago)
+Shae Wender girl u tryna sound smart but u sound real stupid..while fat is a set cell..they also shrink and swell up as well..dats what u call gaining weight when it swells up
babyface (2 years ago)
Shae Wender it's not impossible the only thing I changed was working out my upper body I have a video on it on my channel before and after pics the lot loads of girls that work out their chest have fuller boobs and I defo didn't get surgery either so it happened to me and only took about 3 months believe what you want everyone is different how do you think squats make the ass fuller and rounder? well that's what happened me with the boobs
Shae Wender (2 years ago)
so you gained fat cells?Anatomically, that's impossible (unless surgically done).
babyface (2 years ago)
+Shae Wender not true my breasts were b cups when I hit the gym my bust grew to a 32c from going on the rower machine it does in fact build breast tissue and makes the boobs stand out its like squats but for the boobs lol
Shae Wender (2 years ago)
If you are talking about breast becoming fuller from working out, that is not true. Breast are made of fat, you burn fat while working out so breast size should decrease. As far as the muscle underneath, that virtually has little to nothing to do with breast fullness. You may be able to make your breast perkier but not fuller
