Customer Question

I'm 51 and have not had a period in 10 months. I have been off of the Pill for a year. I am really struggling to lose weight, I workout 5 days a week (Orange Theory Fitness) and I eat a plant based diet. I was considering going back on the pill to see if that would help with the weight lose, Is this safe?
