In brief: Not absorbed

Progesterone cream is not very well absorbed from the skin.
Therefore, you have no way of knowing how it affects your body. It is not recommended.

In brief: None.

Other than mild allergy to inactive ingredients of the cream, most women tolerate vaginal Progesterone cream just fine.
Some vaginal discharge is expected by the nature of the treatment.
