Estrogen loss?: At your age, you should be on Estrogens to lessen risk for osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease prevention! but estrogen deprevation does not causes weight gain per se. It is likely to be caused by diet, lack of exercise, or other hormonal issues! but a better diet and more exercise is a cornerstone for weight loss, no matter the cause for weight gain!
