Do you gain weight during or after hormone replacement therapy?
There is not enough evidence to believe that HRT and weight gain are directly related.
Any medication can sometimes have certain side effects and the hormones used in HRT are no exception. However, all the available evidence shows that weight gain is not one of them in this case. Many women gain weight during menopause, regardless of whether they take HRT or not. You can overcome this through a healthy diet and regular exercise.
