I lost 5 pounds in two days. I've ate very little in the past two days, so I excpected to lose some weight, but not 5 pounds. Could it be cancer?

I have taken mononessa for about four and a half months, and have gained roughly 15-19 pounds. I recently had a period about two weeks ago. A couple concerns I have are any chance I could be pregnant? And is it likely I'll lose the weight once I change ba

That being said, there are always rare cases, so stopping the pills (and perhaps using condoms for a bit) should drop the weight pretty quickly if they're the cause. Pregnancy on the pill is also uncommon, but a home pregnancy test can answer that! ...Read more
