In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
