How do i combat weight gain after pill?
Hi Guys

I've stopped the Pill Triphasil for a month now and have been on the injection Nuristerate. What i find is that i'm gaining weight, even though i'm eating less! I've been given so much of advice and am even drinking alot of water as well. People say that it's my body retaining water, what can i do to feel better about myself?
Thanks for any replies...

There can be a weight gain of up to 5 kg on the injectable due to water retention. There isn't much you can do about this but you can prevent weight gain beyond this by following a healthy balanced diet.
