2 months using cream...sore boobs and retaining water

by Katie

Hi there,

I've been using progesterone cream for about two months now. At first I was using too little and didn't get results, so I bumped it up to 200mg per day sometimes more, applying throughout the day. My skin is clearer, my hair seems to be growing faster, and my mood is more calm, however my breasts are swollen and have been for the past couple weeks. Its weird and I'm not a fan. I am not due to start my period yet and before using the cream, I didn't really have a problem with swollen boobs. They are super sore and I've had to switch over to my old bras from when I was breastfeeding. I am also feeling really bloated in the belly and like I'm retaining water. My whole body seems to be swelling. Am I using too much perhaps?

I am currently using it every single day. Last time I had my period I attempted to take a break from the cream .. but that wasn't a good idea...I felt terrible within a day of stopping ..so I started back up and resolved to use every day for a while. Maybe that's too much? I was hoping progesterone cream would help me to drop water, not retain more. :(.
