Does BHRT cause weight gain?

Oestrogen has the capacity to retain fluid. The fluid may accumulate around the abdomen and within the breasts making the breasts feel more full and sometimes engorged and painful. Generally the body learns to cope with this fluid if the Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is well balanced, preventing long term weight gain. In some women, progesterone has a diuretic-like action so correct balancing of Oestrogen and Progesterone may prevent in excess fluid retention. Bio-identical hormones are also commonly referred to as body-identical hormones.
