HER Body™ #59 | English Taylor - Birth Control and Weight Gain

Listen on iTunes.     Listen on Stitcher.


In this HER Body™ podcast, Alex is joined by health and wellnes writer, English Taylor.

They discuss how English got into writing about women’s health and fertility, as well as research she’s done around various contraceptives and whether or not they can cause weight gain.

Alex shares some experiences she had with trying different types of birth control and the results, more specifically around weight gain (or lack thereof) and the challenges she faced when she finally got off birth control.

They also chatted about some of the ways women can track and pay attention to their symptoms or side effects of contraception and how it may or may not contribute to weight gain.

English Taylor is a women’s health and wellness writer covering everything from tampons to taxes (and why the former should be free of the latter).
