Jitteriness after using progesterone
(Los Angeles, CA)
After rubbing the first dose of progesterone cream on my body, I felt a sense of unease and anxiousness and a raw irritation where I had applied it (labia). I did a total of three applications, when finally I couldn't bare it any longer. I put it on my wrists, one dose on each wrist, and the jitteriness got worse, so badly that I had to violently shake while lying down to go to sleep it was so terrible.
I stopped using but I'm so disappointed because I didn't feel relaxed at all when taking it, I felt anxious, rapid heart rate, and major jitteriness. Like I had drank 6 expressos in one gulp. A day after I stopped using, I felt my calm relaxed self again.
Any idea why this was happening to me?
