Regulating hormonesI have recently gone off birth control pills after being on them for 15 years. I am 48 years old. I have no other medical conditions that I am aware of. I am about to have my second period since going off them about 6 1/2 weeks ago. My belly is so distended I look pregnant most of the time when I was normally fairly slim. I am so frustrated with this extra 10lbs. that I have gained since going off the pill I don't know what to do. I eat very well; whole nutritious foods and excercise fairly well. I am so worried that this weight gain and distention will not go away that I want to go back on the pill just to regualtet things. I amhoping for an alternative that I can live with as I enter in to the menopause years. Any advice?
