6 week appt...birth control

So I just had my 6 week check up today and my doctor prescribed me a birth control pill that I can take while I'm breastfeeding. It's called Jolivette. I read a forum that some women have gained anywhere from 15-40 pounds while taking this pill within a month in a half to 2 months. I haven't taken them yet thank God. I'm a little scared to cuz I've never been on birth control before. I do not wanna gain that weight. Has anyone had experience using Jolivette? If so How was it? Just don't wanna take it without knowing much about it.

Yea I'm sitting the fence about it...I'm not tryna have anymore kids but at the same time I definitely am not tryna gain around 40 pounds. I want to lose weight and I'm close to my pre-pregnancy size. I might go back and possibly have her put an iud in or something.
