Whether you're looking for information about a specific pill you may be/will be starting or are already on a hormonal method and need info about your specific product, you may find it helpful to check out the product website or patient information insert. To help make these accessible, we've compiled a list of the most commonly prescribed products and links to their information.

Where Did That Sheet Go?

These links will take you off-site and the information contained is not associated with or produced by Scarleteen. Whenever possible, we have tried to provide links directly to the information placed online by the manufacturing drug company.

So, if you're wondering what to do about a missed pill for your specific brand, you might want to check here first! The patient information inserts generally have great information about what to do in various situations.

Actually, combination birth control pills aren't directly linked to weight gain. When they are, it's nothing significant.. 1 or 2 pounds a year, which could also be due to something as simple as eating more junk or not exercising.

Some pills cause weight gain in the form of water retention/bloating, but that can be fixed by switching pills.
