Dear Shella
Many hormonal medications do cause weight gain and also water retention. Discuss this with the prescribing dr as the use of a mild diuretic may reverse the water retention. You can eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). While you are on the ‘Weight loss' site, read about the Detox diet, but don't use it for more than 2 days.
