Weight gain, taking Ginet 84 to reduce outbreaks on skin. Side effect?

Hi, I have been on Ginet 84 for approximately 3 years. The reason I went on it was to reduce the outbreaks I was having on my skin. I was told that because of the high estrogen levels it would counteract this. Yes it did work but the side effect is definitely an increase in weight. I am wondering if this is because of the pill? I am going off Ginet 84 as I think my hormone levels have stabiised, so we will see what happens.
