Increasing Anxiety After Miscarriage

by Wendy

Hi Wray,

You have helped me in the past with managing anxiety and panic postpartum. I was hoping for advice again! I just had a miscarriage last week. I am 43 and I was 7 weeks along. I was on progesterone for less a week, but when the miscarriage became evident, I stopped, not wanting to prolong to process. The last couple of days, I have had growing anxiety, and panic feelings are setting in. I am so glad to have remembered the progesterone connection, because I feel sure that is what is effecting me now. However, I'd like to get back to cycling, etc, so I am not sure how to start the progesterone without interfering. My bleeding has been gone for 6 days now. My hcg was under 100 at that time, so I'm sure I am sure the miscarriage is complete. What do you suggest to help my transition?

Increasing Anxiety after Miscarriage

Hi Wendy

So sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I am sure that Wray advised to stay on progesterone should you fall pregnant. I also think that I have answered you too, there are so many posts, it is impossible to remember them all.

I can only suggest that you get back onto the progesterone cream and should you fall pregnant again, to please stay on it. The Anxiety would be due to your hormones being sent on a spin and of course the shock and disappointment of the miscarriage. Please consider taking the nutrients mentioned on the page as well as progesterone.

I suggest you start the progesterone straight away. If your cycle is regular use the cream by following your cycle, if not, used the cream every day for 2-6 months or until things return to normal. Just a reminder to read How to use Progesterone Cream.

Do you know what your Vitamin D3 level is as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone. Stress destroys progesterone, vitamin D3 and magnesium, they all need to be increased during stressful times.

I hope this helps.
