Shay: It’s been years, but I’m fearful of going back on birth control because you can gain weight. Why does birth control make you gain weight? 

Megan: Birth control can possibly make you gain weight, but that is not true for everyone. The weight gain is actually water retention and studies have shown over a 6 to 12 month period participants using a progesterone only pill gained under 4.4 pounds using it. The gain is water retention, not fat gain. Hormonal birth control pills don’t usually have enough hormones to cause weight gain. Your concern is common, but there isn’t direct evidence you would gain weight from the birth control.
