Being on birth control for a long time can help you lose weight. If you’re wondering whether or not you’ll still lose weight if you stop taking the birth control, continue reading.
The Downsides of BC
There are several reasons why you might want to stay on the birth control. If you’re trying to get pregnant, you might want to consider it since birth control can help prevent pregnancy weight loss. If you’ve been through a lot of trouble getting pregnant and you’re worried about your reproductive health, you might also want to stay on the birth control. Finally, if you hate needles and injections, you might want to consider taking a transdermal patch instead of an oral contraceptive pill to avoid the need for daily injections.
Now, as great as birth control can be, there are some downsides. One of the biggest is weight gain. If you decide to stop taking birth control, you might experience weight gain. In fact, some women have reported gaining as much as 20 pounds within the first few months of stopping birth control. To avoid this, some women continue to take birth control even when they’re not wanting to get pregnant. This is mostly due to the fact that they’re worried about their weight and want to keep it steady. If you stop taking birth control and your weight gain is too much, you might want to consider re-starting on the contraception to avoid further weight gain. If you decide to continue stopping birth control, you might also experience some water retention. While this is rarely a problem for those who stay on the pill, it’s still something to be aware of if you decide to stop taking the shot for cosmetic reasons. If you experience any severe side effects such as mood swings, headaches, or excessive bleeding, you should consult your doctor so that he can put you back on track. The same goes for those who decide to stop taking the injection; in some cases, the injections can cause serious health issues. If you get an infection from an injection, you might have to deal with antibiotics since this is highly unlikely to ever happen again once you’re done with your treatment. If you decide to stop taking birth control because you think it’s unhealthy, you might also experience some mood swing or depression. These are all just some of the things you should know about stopping birth control. If you decide to go ahead and stop taking it, you might end up eating more because you’re not as scared of gaining weight as you are of losing it. Always consider your reasons for wanting to discontinue birth control before making any rash decisions. Sometimes, it’s not as easy as saying “yes” or “no” and sticking to it. Life is all about compromise. If you want to come off birth control, you might want to try taking a less active instead of a more active approach to dieting. There are also alternative birth control options available that are less invasive and more user-friendly. If you decide to stop taking the shot for whatever reason, you will need to find an acceptable replacement (a patch, pills, or rings) as soon as possible to avoid experiencing irregular periods and potential health issues. Finally, remember that you’re not alone in wanting to stop taking birth control. There are alternatives available that you can try if you decide that this is what you want to do. Whether you decide to go through with it or not is entirely up to you. But, at the very least, you’ll know what you’re getting into if you do decide to stop taking the shot. And you might just end up being happier if you do.
