Does the birth control pill cause a woman not to ovulate? And if so, why does a woman still have periods while on the pill?

OC: Correct! virtually 100% of the time if properly taken at the same time every day. Your body thinks you ovulated since the hormones on the pill are similar hormones to the ones you make but in higher amounts so when you stop them, your body thinks you are not pregnant and bleeds. ...Read more

How much weight a woman can gain while ovulating and cycle, when is this gain expected? Can clotting and heavy periods cause bloating and weight gain all the time, I just can't loss weight

How much weight a woman can gain while ovulating and cycle, when is this gain expected? Can clotting and heavy periods cause bloating and weight gain all the time, I just can't loss weight

See doctor to review nutrition, exercise, other health/metabolism issues that might need intervention. ...Read more
