Hi. I'm a 47 year-old woman with two kids and I've been working out consistently 4-5 times a week for the last 2 years. I lost 20 pounds after regular personal training, cardio, and consulting a nutrition expert at my gym. I was on a low-estrogen birth control pill, then switched to the Nuvaring 6 months ago. I've gained 10 pounds. I still am working out as much, if not more, but can't seem to control my weight gain.

It's depressing. I have signed up to see a new nutritionist, and I'm getting off the Nuvaring this weekend (I did consult my doctor). Is it the Nuvaring? Menopause? Fate? 8-|
