Am I using the cream correctly?
I have used Natpro last year to eleviate anxiety and bad sleep, which I thought started to work ok though my memory is a little faded. I was having so much on and off anxiety etc that its difficult to tell. I also have a history of endometriosis and post natal depression/anxiety. I had 3 miscarriages in the last half of the year, the most recent in december when I had to stop using the cream until I determined where I was in my cycle.
I have been applying approx 1 teaspoon each day, since January after ovulation, initially more than this as I used it twice each day. I am finding that the first half of the month I don't experience much anxiety and my mood is good but as soon as I start using the cream mid month the anxiety starts again along with hot flushes and I see an immediate change in my emotional state and feel as I have permanant pmt.The anxiety and heat always early morning and through the night. I put this down to activating the estrogen receptors, but how long will this continue? I have stopped applying on an evening now as I fear the anxiety in the night. Maybe I am using too much? Or perhaps am not in need of progesterone cream at all?
I should also mention that I don't measure too accurately or know exactly when I have finished ovulating, does this have to be exact? I know I apply 3-5ml of cream at a time and with 3 days of ovulating each month.
