Early period - headaches!
I will be 50 in August and lately have been experiencing insomnia, weight gain, irritability and some anxiety. I decided to try progesterone cream. The first day I took it I noticed a lightness, just a better overall feeling. I used it for 3 days and got my period. My periods have been so light and maybe 2-3 days. This one is heavy and long. I have had it for 5 days and I am experiencing the worst headaches. I never have headaches. Evan ibuprofin and sleep don't help - I wake up with a headache. Should I keep using progesterone cream? I figured since I was bleeding I should not use it, but man the headaches are terrible. My period came about 12 days early. I am not sure what to do. I felt great the first couple days. When I was not using cream I would have terrible PMS but once my period came, I would be even and balanced - no headaches at all.
