Low progesterone and testerone

by Jessie

My doctor determined that my levels of progesterone and testosterone were low. I started both about 2 weeks ago and although I physically feel better, my breasts have enlarged and I am visibly retaining weight in my abdomen. The scale is showing about a 10lb weight gain (I was already overweight). I am also a couple days late on my period. Today I could barely put my bra on because my breasts were so tender.

I am conflicted because I can't continue like this but I am wondering if it has to get "bad" aka increase in symptoms and weight to get "better" losing weight and system balancing out.

Can someone please give me advice?
