Hormone Weight Gain
2 years ago I tried to fall pregnant via IVF. I was put on Utrogestan tablets, Profasi and Gonal F, Lucrin injections. I've gained at least 20 kg's, which has knocked my self esteem really badly. What can I do about this please?

Dear Natalie

It is unlikely that the weight gain is directly related to the treatment program or any of the medications used. I would advise you to see a physician or an endocrinologist to establish whether there is an underlying metabolic syndrome, which may be responsible for the uncontrolled weight gain.
