Hi Neetu, it does sound as if your weight gain might be hormonal. But to be sure I'd recommend that you see a medical professional, not only about your possible hormonal weight gain. It also sounds as if your menstrual cycle has not yet had time to settle down which might also play a role in not yet being able to conceive. Remember that whenever you stop taking a medication that you have been on for a long time, your body takes time to adjust and this is especially true of contraceptives which do regulate hormones and play a role in weight gain.
Kind regards
