Hi Linda, thank you for the question.
The weight gain you are experiencing is most probably related to the change in your hormone replacement regime. My advice would be to ask the doctor to take the blood tests again and compare the levels. One may need to consider taking the HRT again to try and reduce the weight gain. Other factors should also be considered such as thyroid function but this can be checked with the repeat blood tests.
