No: The only birth control method shown to cause weight gain is depot provera (medroxyprogesterone). Birth control pills do not cause weight gain. They can cause mood changes, but these typically will lesson or go away completely after a few months. A birth control method with no hormonal side effects would be the copper iud or condoms.

Options: In general, the low dose combination pills (20mcg of estrogen) do not cause weight gain. Pregnancy, however, does! So it's probably worth taking the very small chance of a few pounds on the pill rather than the very good chance of an in unintended pregnancy.

Other than tubal ligation and taking a pill every day, what is the best birth control option for me if I am deathly afraid of weight gain?

Other than tubal ligation and taking a pill every day, what is the best birth control option for me if I am deathly afraid of weight gain?

LARC's are best: The number 1, best, most effective methods of pregnancy prevention for heterosexual girls and women are "forgettable LongActing Reversible Contraceptives"which include IUD's (ParaGard, Mirena, (levonorgestrel) Skyla) and subdermal implants (Implanon, Nelanon). A daily contraceptive pill is not. The option of sterilization by tubal occlusion procedures is usually chosen by women who want a more permanent method.
