My OH works away months at a time, and when he got home two months ago I went off the pill. I was on estelle. Admittedly I havnt been exercising as much as I used to, and I also started working in an office so I am not on my feet as much.
In that two months I have gained 5kgs! I am devastated that I have gained this weight and feel awful. We dont eat terribly, mostly chicken and veg but we do have dinner out on a weekend, usually Thai. Our eating hasn't changed for the worse thats for sure. 85% healthy id say.
My question is, did any of you ladies notice a weight gain after you went off contraception? I was under the impression I might lose weight!
My other question is, will weight gain lower our chances of conception? This month is our last chance and im worried ive ruined it. And if I were to fall pregnant, can I lose weight in the first few months?
Thank you for reading, my OH is about to leave for 6 months and his approach to it is your beautiful and we have 6 months apart to lose it, enjoy our time together now. Which is beautiful (hes the best, but im biased ) but I still have these niggley thoughts on my mind.
Id love to hear your stories and what you thought was the cause of gain or loss after the pill. TIA
