Thanks for the quick reply Karen.
Yes i am female , and my age is 45. I can confirm from recent blood tests that i am not pre menopausal and dont have periods due to a thermal oblation procedure , which was done april last year ,at the same time i was also sterilised . I have also wondered if weight gain is to do with these 2 additional changes .
I have to go to the doctors next week and will discuss both meds and operations for the causes of weight gain .
As i was only put on these for a 6 month period i surely need to ween of these shortly anyway ?
