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..

Feeling Bad from Estrogel
| Darla ng
I didn't feel bad until it caused me to gain 25 pounds in 3 weeks. This caused me to develop insulin resistance and an increase in blood pressure. I felt horrible. I stopped using because it caused so many problems due to intolerance. I'm a small woman, so the weight gain wasn't good. I stopped the Estrogel and went on compounded Biest, no problems.
