Could the preglenelone be turning into cortisol in my body instead of progesteone??

Hello I’ve been on 200mg bioidentical progesteone now for about 3 weeks. I mistakenly stopped at cycle day 28 and developed horrible insomnia not sleeping at all for 3 nights. So I decided to stay on it everyday.
Even though I’m on it everyday I’m feeling anxiety and still horribly bloated. I am sleeping a bit better but not great. My question is: COULD THE PREGLENELONE IN MY BODY BE TURNING INTO CORTISOL INSTEAD OF PROGESTRONE?? I have read that this is a reaction sometimes of people who have adrenal fatigue. I have bad estrogen dominance after having UFE for fibroid removal and gained 20 pounds, bloated all the time and just miserable. So I really believe progesterone could help me but not sure if it’s going to be right for me if my body isn’t processing it correctly.
I am desperate for answers so if anyone could help I’d forever be grateful!
