Off pill gained weight
I went off the pill (to get pregnant) 2 month ago. I use Femodene, which apparently has a higher estrogene level. I gained a lot of weight since then, even though my diet did not change and I still excercise. I don't want to get pregnant with this extra weight as well. What caused this?

Probably a change in the hormones. DietDoc may be able to give you some advice on how to lose it.
