Our expert says:
I agree with your gynae - all female hormone treatments have the potential of causing weight gain, or making it difficult to lose weight. Seeing that your present BMI = 22,5 which is ideal for your height I cannot understand why you are trying to lose more weight. Constant dieting to lose weight when your weight is already ideal can land you in the vicious cycle of 'yo-yo dieting' which can damage your metabolism. Keep up the healthy eating and the exercise and stop trying to lose more weight.
