I'm also on progesterone and estrogel, I've been using them for about 5 weeks and while I have gained some weight, the swollen bloated feeling that I have to deal with is unbearable, I thought I was loosing my mind because I feelth like I had gained 40lbs... I was very uncomfortable. Nothing is worth me feeling the way I do right now..
