Dear Gaining Weight
It is unfortunate that some women do gain weight when they use hormonal contraceptives (others lose weight again). I can only suggest that you discuss this problem with your gynae to see if there are other methods of contraception that you can use that do not cause you to gain weight.
I hope that the problem can be sorted out.
