Our expert says:
Oral contraceptives will take one month to be out of your system. I do suggest that she engages in regular exercise with emphasis on cardio-vascular exercises for at least one hour per day, five times per week. Like cycling, jogging and swimming. A healthy balanced diet will also be to her advantage.
It is also possible that your daughter has an underactive thyroid, which is causing the weight gain and I strongly recommend that she consults a GP, to have a thyroid count done.
