Weight gain after going off the Pill
I''ve stopped using the Pill (Yazz) in October 2012. The first month after stopping I had a normal period but since then I haven''t had one.
I''ve also started gaining weight - especially round my belly, hips and thigs, and although I exercise regularly and eat healthily I just can''t shift the weight!
Does going off the Pill has something to do with this?? I am 48 years old.
Thank you

It may be that your normal body functions have now kicked in. Middle age spread is a real entity at your age.
