    Yep, I've always been a cat person.  The kitty in the picture is Lissie.  She was new-ish to us that year.  She showed up as a stray and I started feeding her behind my parents backs.  She stuck around and eventually earned a place in our family.

    She just died last March.  I'm still sad.

    Heck, it may make it easier.  I know people who have lost weight due to BC, too.

    Just keep a close eye on any side effects you notice.  Write everything down for a month or two, and go to your doctor if anything bad is happening.

    <div>Talk with your doctor about it. She may have some insight as to which one will help you out with that the most. Like I said, I can contribute some of that to the guy I was dating. I really think only 5-8 lbs came from the actual BCP. </div>

    Today's news from my non-NEY Knot world: someone on the Wedding Woes forum has been anti-trans all day despite everyone discussing the whole trans movement with her and it's almost come to a 'hold mah weave' moment a few times. I do not appreciate this person and hope that she is a troll, but that may be too much to ask.

    Yeah I probably should have asked the doctor today. But I didn't even think to when I was there.

    <div>I haven't heard of that one. :/ Can you call your doc and ask to speak to a nurse at the office? They can usually answer questions pretty well. Or at least have a doctor call you back. I would suggest staying away from google as that can be some scary sh!t. </div>

    Beth - I was on BCP for 14 years.  I didn't have an issue with weight gain (at least not that I can attribute to BCP).  The only "side effects" I experienced were less painful/heavy periods and it really helped with my acne.  My OBGYN also said that I greatly reduced my chances for ovarian cancer by taking BCPs for so long.

    That said, there were definitely brands that just didn't work with my body.  It was a work in progress to find the perfect pill.  The last one (and favorite of mine) was Seasonique (or Seasonale if you want the low hormone version).  This is the pill that you take continuously for 3 months so that you only have your period 4 times a year.  THE BEST THING EVAR!!

    Good to know you found one that you really liked, SKP. I'm thinking I'll just have to see how it goes for a couple of months. If I don't like it I'll talk to my doctor about switching.

    That is really the best thing to do.  It's kind of a trial and error sort of thing.  :)

    <div>This is what I take, Beth. It's the first BCP that makes me feel normal. I've tried a ton & this is the one that works best for me. I can't say about the weight gain because I've been on BCPs for a really long time but I will say that each form a birth control & each pill will generally affect everyone differently. Those pills that made my crazy might not affect someone else negatively at all. Definitely take notes if you feel like something's different/off & speak to your doctor about it. </div>
