Am I Weird?
I just don't understand it all. I am 51, perimenopausal. Using BHRT.
Progesterone is supposed to make you calm, and help you sleep. But when I take it, I feel HORRIBLE. It appears to raise my cortisol and cause all kinds of horrible symptoms. I will be feeling like " Life is grand" and can tolerate difficulties with ease, but after a week of P, I am depressed, life is not worth living, and increased fear and panic. So, I hate to even take it.
I have cut the dosage way down, because I don't need that endometrium build-up.
Surely, I am not the only one that reacts like this to Progesterone. And do you think it might help if I used OTC cream? Or can some women not use it, with minimal problems?
This is not a new issue, and am looking forward to hearing what you think about this.
