weight issues
last year a clinic sister put me on the injection. I then weighed 60 kg's. my normal weight. In 3months time I had put on 20 kg's. Iwalkedc to school every day and didnt eat much. I did regular excersize but I just got bigeer and bigger. in October last year I stopped taking it an my weight has drpped a few kg's. Ifelt better and everything .I then decided to go on the pill. I was on it for 9 months and my weight came and and dropped again. it went like a see-saw. after a discussion my my fiance and mother I sayd Im going to leave the pill to see if you can reach my normal wieht again. its been 4 days and i feel great. my periods are regular again and I dont feel bloated. Can it be that the injection and pill didnt work with my body? I todl the sister about it and she didnt believe me. my mom and sister and fiance and his mother sayd it affected me and let me put on weight. a friend told me his girlfriend is using Diane for her acne and the has a problem wit her stomache she cant get rid off. is it then true docotr than it affected me? me and my fiance decided to wait for sex after were married.

Hi there,

it is possible that it affected your metabolism - any medications we use can have side effects. For a professional answer to this I would encourage you to post your question to our GynaeDoc here at Health24 as she is our expert in this field. You may also think about going to see a gynaecologist as there may be a pill contraceptive that does work for you.

If you have decided to abstain from sex that is your choice, but if you and your fiancee want to have a sexual relationship he can always use condoms to prevent pregnancy.

Best wishes
