Can progesterone help with the puffiness in my face, particularly my cheeks?
I am 53 years old and have had puffiness in my cheeks since I was 16. I also had a tubul ligation from an IUD at this time. I also started getting a lot of migraine headaches.I have been on HRT for 10 years prompted by depression and the migraines. I started loosing my scalp hair, my depression improved but returned, weight gain, and had a hysterectomy 4 years ago because of uterine cancer. 4 months ago I came across your web site and stopped all HRT and started progesterone therapy. My hair has stopped falling out but my face is still puffy. I also started L-Tryptohpan and my depression and sleep is much better. I am still having night sweats, although, which wakes my up at night. I am taking 1 tsp. of progesterone 2X/day, morning and night. The puffiness in my face really bothers me. Anything I can do?
