Progesterone and Thyroid
by Sharon Hawkins
(Humble Texas )
My question is: Does progesterone increase thyroid hormones over a period of time? The more progesterone I take the more my insomnia worsens. I'm on desiccated thyroid 1 grain/100 milligrams of progesterone trouche and three times a week bi est vaginal cream.325.
My sleep improves only during the end of a very light cycle. I'm starting to dwindle down on the cycles. Should I reduce my thyroid meds? My Doctor upped my progesterone to 100 from 25 and no sleep, seriously I'm up for 24 plus hours three or four days a week, until I fall asleep exhausted.
I'm giving up, been to three doctors and nothing. Going out of my mind. My estrogen was very low so that is why my Doctor prescribed the Bi-set cream which helps with vaginal dryness and bladder and over all dry skin. But no sleep, DHEA is very high and cortical too.
Thank you for your time.
