Need advice!! My 17 Y/O daughter has been gaining so much weight w her BC. She has been dating her BF for almost 3 years so when she came to me about BC I was a little upset at first but was glad that she felt that she could talk to me about it. She has been on the pill for almost 2 years. Her doctor keeps changing it because she also has a lot of problems w her cycle.
With this last pill it seems like she has really put on a lot of weight. She is crying about it every night and doesn't want to try on school clothes. My daughter has always been an athlete and has never been heavy. When she talks to her doctor about it she acts like its not a big deal (the doctor)
So now I am at a loss. She wants to stop taking it because of the weight but I don't want her to take the chance of getting pregnant. She is a senior in HS and has so much going for her!!! So it has become a daily struggle for us also (as far as fighting)
My question is what is a good BC that doesn't cause you to gain weight !!
