Sprinolactone: Swelling is rare with Progesterone so you should see your doctor to evaluate other causes. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic that we use for edema.

Usually nothing: Most women are on short term Progesterone and swelling should be temporary. I hope it's an fda approved formulation... If you are taking it in pregnancy, then meds like spironolactone would be contraindicated.

Edema: First you need to have evaluation for the cause of swelling. Swelling of the face and legs could be dueto several reasons, heart, liver or kidneys not working well.
