Can birth control make you fat? I was recently put on ortho tri-cyclen lo for hormonal reasons & was wondering if it could make me fat.

Some women. May gain weight with ocg's, but it is impossible to predict whom. It varies from woman to woman and from one pill to another. In any event, you still need to eat the calories to gain the weight, so dietary control is (as always) of utmost importance. Check w/your doctor.
