Yes: It is always possible to take too much of anything. That is why there is a dosing schedule and it is generally prescribed.
Progesterone in general,can cause many side effects including stomach upset, changes in appetite, fluid retention / swelling, fatigue, acne, drowsiness or insomnia, skin rashes, hives, fever, headache, depression & breast discomfort. All can be made worse by too much of course
