Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.It is possible that you ovulated and caused problems with your periods. It is also possi ble that you are pregnant. One more thing to know about OCPs is that they can cause obesity.This obesity or increase in fat is most probably what you are experiencing. To avoid this side effect, you can talk to a Doctor and change to a progesterone only pill. Hope this helps you. All the best.
