Fast gyn facts: The pill & weight
[00:00:00] Will I gain weight on the pill? That's a common question that all of us get asked as OBGYNs, and the honest answer is we don't know. Meaning it's not as though one pill always makes people gain weight, or one pill always makes people lose weight. The data shows that a third of the patients will gain. A third will lose and a third will stay the same.
So, honestly, honestly, honestly, there's no way for us to predict. You might have 50 friends who love a particular brand and then you go on it and your body just doesn't agree with it, or vice versa. All of them might hate it and you might like a CER certain brand. So if you go on the internet and read the Google reviews or go into chat rooms, unfortunately you're gonna find people who are more negatively affected because that's just the way, um, society works that we tend to complain more than we tend to kind of shout out.
So it's not a really accurate assessment. Unfortunately, if you wanna be on the pill, and we've talked about it before, the pill is amazing, and yet it's not right for everybody. But if you wanna go on the pill, you have to accept that there might be a period of time where you feel hungrier and you gain weight.
And if that's the case, then you should switch to a different brand and talk to your doctor.
