Washington: Contrary to popular misconceptions, the combined pill - the most widely used contraceptive up to the age of 29 - does not cause weight increase, shows a new research from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
Despite women`s concerns about weight gain, the researchers did not find any link between being on the pill and putting on weight. The only factors that affected weight were ageing and smoking. Lindh said she would like this new knowledge to increase the use of the combined pill and thus reduce the risk of unwanted pregnancies. ANI
