Hi, I'm so frustrated and confused. Started Utovlan 25 days ago. So far, it has REALLY helped with my pain, energy levels. I've missed one period so far and it was great. I'm supposed to be on this for three months and then gyno will reassess. However, I'm gaining weight very quickly. Half a stone in 25 days.
Considering that stomach fat stores estrogen, I'm not exactly thrilled about this tyre I'm developing around my middle.
My weight has always been relatively constant so I'm finding this alarming, especially since I read about weight gain as potential side effect and I was already suspecting that since my endo got worse int he past two years, my waist has been growing slowly so I was already being careful about my diet (and yes I'm already on the endo diet).
I guess my question is has anyone found that their weight does level out after awhile on hormonal treatment? Or has had massive unmanageable weight gain despite genuinely watching their diet? Or am I just screwed and am going to gain four stone? Or is this just an adjustment period and I'll be able to lose the weight once my body gets used to the progestin?
