In brief: No

Statistically, no; meaning there is no worthwhile scientific evidence that this results from Progesterone use, micronized or otherwise.
On the other hand, these are both among the complaints individual women sometimes have when using progesterone.

In brief: No

It should not affect your body storing fat nor cause acne.
Progesterone is the first hormone that your body loses in the early pre-menopausal period. It is very easy. Loss of these hormones make it easier for your body to store fat, especially around the tummy area.
