Vivelle *** and weight gain

I'm 20 years old and severly lacking estrogen...my gyno/hormone specialist just put me on 0.1 vivelle ***...I was wondering if any of you that might be taking it for menopause or a hormone inbalance have had weight gain or water retention?? Or felt any side effects?? Thank you.

I was using Vivelle for a couple of months hoping that it would help with these perimenopause symptoms. I found that the Vivelle *** was effective without side effects, but not completely for my fluctuating hormones so now I'm using Loestrin bcp. I did not experience weight gain or water retention. BTW I was also using Prometrium along with Vivelle since I still have my uterus.
