Weight: 111kg Am on 1200 calories diet and my weight is increasing since i have been taken progyluton for 20 days now. I have problem with my period. I have my period once every three months and my doctors said that my hormons test is excelent but because i have lost 50kg my body is not adapting well with the weight loss . So i have to take progyluton for six months and then come back to see her again.

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

It may cause weight gain in some cases but not in all. Anyhow, as you that there are plenty of other causes for weight gain which needs to be ruled before attributing it to progyluton. I think that at this time it is prudent to discuss the about this medication with your treating doctor who had analyzed your problem better. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications.
