Thank you for your good wishes for the new year which I reciprocate heartily. The relationship between female hormone intake and weight is indeed one of those mysteries. Some women will lose weight, while other women will gain weight when they take female hormones. This is evidently an individual reaction. I am just glad that you are one of those women who lose weight when you use the pill. I have not yet come across an explanation for this phenomenon because the interaction of the hormones with metabolism is very complex and what may stimulate one person's metabolism, can suppress another person's metabolism. The human body is indeed a strange and wonderful system.
