Hi Anonymous, Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Every woman reacts differently to HRT so it may or may not cause weight gain. We cannot be sure. I guess the best thing would be to talk to your physician and have frequent checkups to monitor your concerns. I hope this helps. MissieJune 1, 2014 - 6:19am
