Hello and please forgive me for posting several times in a short span. Hoping some wise person can advise.
I took 200 mg progesterone cream for the month of January and 600 mg for the month of Feb and beyond. Today I woke up outrageously bloated, looking pregnant. The bloat begins just under my bra and extends through my whole abdomen. I visited a Chinese Medicine Doctor who says my liver is inflamed (or something around my liver). He advises a visit to the Western doctor and an ultrasound.
I am certain the western doctor will not approve of my progesterone cream and am writing for advice - is there ANY way the inflammation and bloating could be caused by the progesterone? I've done a little reading and it doesn't seem likely. My thinking is maybe my liver is working extra hard to clear all my excess oestrogen?
Just looking for a little reassurance so I won't be bullied by my doctor at tomorrow's visit.
Hope someone can offer some guidance and thanks in advance!
