Hi Wray:

I have been taking progesterone cream 100 mg of awakening woman from alternative medicine. These past few days I've woken up with a headache. Could there be a relation?

Thank-you so much for your help.

Hi Leona Yes there can be. Progesterone is very good for headaches, see here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. But too little causes them. It sounds paradoxical but progesterone stimulates oestrogen if not enough is used. Although you're using the lowest amount I suggest, evidently it's not sufficient. Please consider increasing it to 150-200mg/day and see if that helps you. We also have a page on Migraines with more info. Take care Wray
