Our expert says:
I suspect that the contraceptive injection has caused this weight gain. That is the problem with taking female hormones, some of them cause weight loss and others cause weight gain and every woman's reaction is individual. I would recommend that you go back to the prescribing dr and discuss this problem with him/her. It may be possible to change the dosage or the type of contraception you use.
