Does the levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ED contraceptive pill make me gain weight?

No. Although weight gain is a very common reason women give for stopping birth control pills, scientific evidence shows that there is no weight gain associated with most types of contraception with the exception of the Depo-Provera shot. Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) is good birth control pill choice. You will need to continue to watch your dietary intake and exercise every day to maintain a healthy body weight.
