Our expert says:
Unfortunately any female hormone treatment can either cause weight gain or loss depending on the individual reaction of the patient. In your case it is evident that the Progynova is causing your weight gain and the increase in breast size and joint pain (all side-effects listed for this medication). I think you need to phone the dr's rooms again and say that you are having serious side-effects from the medication and MUST see him again. Then discuss these side-effects with the dr and ask him to change your medication. If he is not a gynaecologist, it may also be a good idea to ask him to refer you to a gynae for a proper assessment.
I hope you can get this sorted out.
