Can stopping NuvaRing cause weight gain?

I was on the ring for a few months at a consistent weight and then I stopped taking it because I wasn't sexually active at the time. I gained a considerable amount of weight and my periods stopped. I don't know if the weight gain was caused by the absence of the ring- there were a lot of other contributing factors in my life at the time that could have caused weight gain- but it was directly related to my periods stopping. I'm sorry I couldn't offer a better answer, but I saw that no one else had replied and I thought a little feedback would help. :)
