will birth control make me gain weight?

i've heard birth control can make you fat and have acne.


  • Most methods of birth control are not associated with weight gain. Methods like Depot-Provera which is a higher dose of Progesterone can be associated with some water weight gain and increased appetite so some people do gain up to 3 pounds a year. IUDs and implants (like Nexplanon) are also Progesterone but not usually enough to cause increased weight.
