Weight gain on BC

Did anyone had weight gain after getting BC? I have an implant called nexplanon and since June I went from 65kg to 75kg (which is 168lbs) I was 174lbs and started two weeks ago intermittent fasting, and now I'm 168lbs, which is good because means it's working, but I just want to make sure that the implant "helped" to be where I am. I've read some articles and some of them says the implant there's nothing to do with weight gain and some of them says it has, I'm planning on getting IUD or another BC next year because this one has a lot of hormones, my breasts are bigger now and my hips are too, sometimes I look at the mirror and looks like I'm pregnant lol the research I did says that the implant works on "pretending" you already pregnant I guess that's why my breast are bigger since I got the implant.

After I had my daughter I got the BC nexplanon and it causes so many problems gaining weight restless leg syndrome dizzy spells and headaches any BC you get will gain weight I had to get it removed.

Been on implant rod, last January and I noticed my weight is just similar but I have been working out 4x in a week consuming food carefully yet unable to loose any weight.

I am just now hearing about so much weightloss with this bc. I just took mine out after almost 2 years. I never had an issue with weight though.

wow, it's about the same I did, now I can't go down under 170/168, it really frustrates me, this summer I'm gonna try as hard as I can to lose at least 10 pounds, if doesn't work, I'm giving up.
