That's very typical--many women gain weight on hormonal birth control. Someone mentioned worsening migraines--I had that problem too.
There are lot of different kinds of pills on the market these days, so if one doesn't work for you, another with a different combination of hormones or a lower dose might be better. There are also non-hormonal methods like copper IUDs and more permanent solutions like the Essure procedure.
I really really did not want to have a hysterectomy and it was extremely painful...I certainly would not recommend that to anyone just for birth control purposes.
