Thanks for writing in.
If you are on oral contraceptives, that could be the cause of your weight gain and bloating
. Or the weight gain and bloating could be due to the fact that the next period is around the corner. Today is aug 25.
It is a good thing that you have taken an appointment with your gynaecologist. She might examine you and advise for an ultrasound
of the abdomen and a complete blood picture if your cramping persists.
Hope this helps.
