Do combined oral contraceptives cause weight gain?

I started Lo Loestrin Fe ([a combined estrogen-progestin oral contraceptive pill](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combined_oral_contraceptive_pill)) about 4 months ago. The first month on it, I got my period. The second month, I did not. The third month I got it. Now, its my fourth month and I am supposed to start today but haven't. I have been to the doctors recently and also noticed that I gained 4 pounds. Do combined oral contraceptives cause weight gain?
