Birth Control does not make you gain a substantial amount of weight. Its usually about 8 lbs. a year so if you've gained more than that then look at your eating habits. Just don't eat junk food, don't over eat, etc. Obviously birth control can make it easier to gain weight, but if your noticing it quickly enough than you won't need to lose that much. If you are not eating any differently, than contact your OB/GYN or your family doctor and express your concerns to them. They may recommend a different kind of birth control.

i have dealt with this prob in the past,what i did was simply quit that bc,gave my body a while free from hormones,then moved on toa new method.You just have to search around for the birth control that works for you.

Speaking from experience, not really.
