I would start with your Dr. I'm on both estrogen and progesterone supplements and not having dramatic weight gain. It's possible your Dr. could adjust your medications to be more to your advantage in controlling your weight. Note if your eating habits have changed at all. Sometimes calories sneak in our diets and we don't notice the change. Also our bodies do pack on extra weight as we enter our 40s and 50s and so on. We need fewer calories or more exercise just to maintain our weight. Also look at your drugs and see if you're taking something that promotes weight gain.
