    Extreme edema and weight gain
    I have been ortho tri-cyclen Lo for several years and never had a problem until recently. I experienced rapid weight gain and extreme edema. Has any one else had this happen.

    well i was only on it for 4 months, and during that time i gained about 5-7 pounds. Not extreme, but definitely noticeable. I think it makes you feel bloated, which causes your stomach to get bigger. No edema for me though.

    I am in the middle of deciding what birth control to choose. I just had my IUD taken out bc I had tons of problems with it. Did Ortho make you moody or feel "crazy"? What about weight gain?

    u might wanna get off that brand, thats all the advice I can give. Every pill has different side affects for different women. Maybe a diff kind will be better for your body. good luck
