In 8 days I have gained 2 1/2 pounds and I feel like I am going to PUKE the whole time. Is it normal to gain on the pill?

I am a proud wife to a hard working man Russ
and I have two wonderful kids Hannah and Will!

I Never had that. I didn't gain weight when I went on the pill at all though. I don't think you should feel sick no matter what though.

I did -- that's why I quit taking it. I put on 8 lbs in just a matter of a few weeks. Took forever to get it back off too!

I did with Ortho Tri-Cyclen, but not much. and I had a hard time losing while I was on that.

With Yasmin, I actually lost.

The pill makes your body think it's pregnant so any pregnancy symptom like weight gain and nausia is normal. I gained when I took it and it's practically impossible to lose any weight when on it for me.
