I have been taking the same pills for a couple years, just switched brands last month (dumb move, trying to save money) and I swear, I have gained weight in just one month. Not a ton of weight but I have been like the size of pre period bloat all month starting like a week after I started the new pills. Nothing else has changed like with diet or exercise, could it really be the pills????? Thanks!!

I always ended up with about a 3-5lb bloat in the first week or two of being on pills .. it eventually went away though, but I don't remember how long it took.

I was switched to a different pill once, and gained about five pounds in 1 month and my skin went crazy...
