Insomnia and Hair Loss
Hi, firstly thanks to everyone, especially Wray, for the abundance of information on this website. It is (literally) a life saver. I was in a dark place before discovering natural progesterone cream and this website.
I have been using natural progesterone cream (started with another brand, but using Natpro when available) for about a month now. It has dramatically improved my chronic insomnia and completely cured my excessive hair loss (I have lost 50% of my hair) plus a few other things, which I am now sure was caused by my doctor (who I trusted emphatically) putting me back on the birth control pill at age 48 for more than 4 years, which resulted in estrogen dominance.
However, I have just read an excerpt from Hopkins Health Watch which states "if you use too much progesterone day after day you’ll start shutting down your progesterone receptors and won’t be able to sleep again". How much is too much? This has sent me into a state of stress again, after being so calm for a while now (the calmness is a new and wonderful feeling for me and I thank natural progesterone cream for that). Does anybody have any information on this? I really shudder to think of being in a situation where I absolutely cannot sleep again. I'd appreciate any input. Many thanks.
