Does premarin usage lead to weight gain?

I am about to start to take Premarin after a total hysterectomy. I am having hot flashes and am getting no sleep 6 weeks post op. I am concerned about weight gain. What are the odds that I will gain weight and what is the average weight gain using Premarin. Also, how fast would weight gain happen if it does?
