Lipedema Hormone Imbalance : Birth Control and Menopause

My lipidema problem absolutely accelerated when I got off birth control pills.  I was trying to see if I would have a period if I didn't take them, and found that I wouldn't, so I stopped them altogether.  Within 2 years I gained 55 uncontrollable pounds.  My estrogen predominates over my progesterone levels, and I am using wild yam cream to try to re-balance.  It has stopped the rapid weight gain, but I haven't lost any.  Between menopause and birth control, I most definitely see a correlation between lipedema  (lipidema) and hormone imbalance.
