I take it and have lost weight. However, that's while attempting to lose weight, for real - i.e. counting calories and sticking with it.

Most birth control weight gain is due to an increase in appetite caused by the pill, not actual weight gain caused by the pill. So if you know this, and continue to monitor your intake correctly, the pill should have no effect on your weight gain or loss.

I say should, because some people react more aversely than others. For some people, maybe it does cause weight gain. I haven't seen that in myself though.

I have been using it for almost two years now and did notice a change in my appetite as well as in my libido for a little while. but, I have now lost forty pounds and have been able to keep it off now for almost 9 months. just be careful about what you eat!
