Our expert says:
It is not unusal for patients on Estrogen supplementation, albeit in a low dose form, to develop fluid retention. Together with the pregnancy hormone changes that occur, this may precipitate, or may be an aggravating factor in patients with an underlying cardiac problem.
As it is not necessary to use estrogen supplementation beyond the implantation and luteal-placental phase, I would certainly recommend that you stop the Progynova immediately.This should not affect the outcome of the pregancy as estrogen supplementation is not necessary 80 days beyond embryo transfer.
However, I do not believe that the progynova is the primary cause for the pulmonary odema and that rather it appears that the underlying cardiac problem is a serious contributory factor in this regard. The problem is best managed in conjunction with a cardiologist.
