Does Norgeston make you gain weight?

Norgeston is a type of progestogen only pill (POP, also known as the mini-pill).

Weight change is a common short term side effect of the POP, along with, spotty skin, breast tenderness, nausea / vomiting, stomach upset, headaches and change to sex drive or mood.

These side effects are usually temporary and should go after a few months. However, if side effects persist, or you are finding them difficult to deal with, you may want to consider trying a different type of POP or alternative contraceptive methods.
