Nothing to do with weight control that I ever heard.

No, it's not true. People lose weight by using up more calories than they consume. It's bad that she would tell you to go on them for that reason.

The opposite, most birth control list weight gain as one of the side effects.

Defiantly. I gained about ten pounds, even running everyday for 3+ miles :(

My birth control made me gain weight. It also makes your boobs bigger though, so I mean, it's not all bad. But yeah, definitely don't go on the pill if you're looking to lose weight.

Is your friend breast feeding her baby? Breast feeding shrinks the uterus back to its original shape and helps the birth mother lose weight, while also giving the baby the nourishment it needs, including antibodies to fight infection. Everyone is different and so you can't depend on your friend's advice on how to lose weight. She does not know what she is talking about. Exercise, healthy eating habits, and not overeating will give you a "good body".

On second thought - she must not be breast feeding if she is already taking birth control pills again. Anyway - birth control pills are not really good for you, and many women get sick when they take them or gain weight. Some even cause your hair to thin out. They can cause blood clots. Especially, if you smoke - but for the love of all that is good for your body - DO NOT SMOKE. Okay - bye
