Law Graduate Whose Contraceptive Injection Caused Her To Balloon To 280lbs Loses by stellapatu: 4:56pm On Dec 12, 2019
A law graduate has undergone gastric sleeve surgery in a bid to lose weight after claiming her contraceptive injection caused to balloon to 280lbs (20 stone).

Brittany Nicholson, 25, from Indiana - who suffers from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) - decided to start having a contraceptive injection every three months, because it was proven to help stop her painful periods and ovarian cysts.

Brittany, who weighed 154lbs (11 stone) at the age of 16, began to gain weight soon after starting the injections, despite dieting and frequently visiting the gym - and by the age of 23, she had put on a total of 126lbs (11 stone).As a last resort, Brittany, opted to have a gastric sleeve - where part of the stomach is removed - in September 2018, and has since lost 100lbs (seven stone) and feels happier than ever with her 182lb (13 stone) frame.

Brittany, who is now working as a law intern, said: 'At the age of 16 I had started to experience symptoms of polycystic ovaries.

'I went to the doctors due to the stomach pain and an ultrasound found cysts on my ovaries and from there I was diagnosed.

'The cysts had taken over and I was put on birth control to stop the cysts growing any further.

'But the weight piled on, I was 154lbs (11 stone) when I was 16 and then 280lbs (20 stone) by the time I was 23.

'Everyone is different, and some people may not have gained weight on this medication whilst others might have but were able to control it by dieting and exercising.

Most of those contraceptive or family planning injections are the reason many Nigerian women are obese.
