Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Crash dieting is known to cause disturbance in the hormonal levels of the body.I think excessive dieting and exercise were mainly responsible for your weight loss.All the hormone therapies related to female sex hormones do have weight gain as a common side effect.
