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.
