It's reasonable you might gain water weight, this will drop once you stop the medicine. Progestins do not make you gain mass (fat), so this would not be caused by meds and would likely not go away on stopping. ...Read more

I have been on Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 3 months and now have breakthrough/mid-cycle bleeding. Nordette caused severe weight gain. What now? :(

I have been on Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 3 months and now have breakthrough/mid-cycle bleeding. Nordette caused severe weight gain. What now? :(

See details: If you missed any pills or took them late, you might get breakthrough bleeding. If you are taking them correctly, I would not start making any changes if it only happened one month. If you are not having any other symptoms, I would wait and see what happens the next month. If the problem persists, make an appointment with your gynecologist. ...Read more
