It happens to me pretty consistently since starting my medication (same hormones as birth control). I'll gain about 3/4 of a pound a week for the 3 weeks I'm "on" (which means I gain ~2-2.5 lbs), and then I'll lose that quickly over the fourth week without the hormones.
I weigh, but I only really pay attention to the weight loss tat occurs over the 4 week period between cycle pt to cycle pt. For example, if I'm doing a 12 week thing, I only compare week 1 with weeks 5 and 9, I compare week 2 with week 6 and 10, Week 3 compares with 7 and 11, and then week 4 is with 8 and 12. That way, the bloat of my cycle isn't a lurking variable in my weight stats.
