progesterone converting to cortisol
by Rita T.
Hi! I am using progesterone cream and reaping the benefits. When I apply too much mistakenly, I feel the opposite (jitteriness, agitation, insomnia, and racing heart) of what I would feel with regular dose (calm, relaxed, and mildly drowsy). I am not a scientist but I have read in a book (Dr Uzzi Reiss) that some people have "paradoxical" reaction to (very high) progesterone: their cortisol becomes overly high. Is this what is happening to me? Please help!
