Among the possible side effects of birth control pills are weight gain from either fluid retention or increased appetite, and larger, sometimes tender breasts. You seem to have all of them. Ask your doctor if another brand of pill might have fewer side effects for you. Make sure you drink a lot of water, and try to eat a balanced diet all the time. Fill up on healthful, low-calorie food like vegetables and don't try to eat as much as your husband does. A registered dietician can give you detailed advice. Regular exercise will help your weight problem. Keep your husband.
