Weight gain on bcp's: On "Yaz", and other low dose oral contraceptives, weight gain is not generally a consequence. After age 40, one's metabolism is markedly reduced, so calorie intake should be reduced as well, especially for carbohydrates ( bread, sweets, etc.). If weight gain continues, see your healthcare provider for testing.
