No periods and extreme weight gain
I was on nur-isterate for about 1 year and gave it up almost a year ago. I have had 2 normal periods in November and December 06 and then nothing further. I am putting on weight drastically. I am very worried as I am trying to fall pregnant. I am 32 could this be hormones? How do I combat this?

Some women gain weight on the injection. It should not be related to the injection if it happens afterwards.
Your periods may be irregular for a while before they normalise. You should, of course, check a pregnancy test.
