Low progesterone or estrogen?
I'm 52, after a sudden 3 month bout of stress I have not had a period fro 7 weeks and have terrible anxiety all day and night giving me insomnia. I haven't slept all that time. Maybe a couple of hours the odd night. My pse is racing throughout the night and I can't seem to tax enough to sleep. I'm exhausted. I have read about the cream but I am worried it may be low estrogen and GP will not test hormones. Can I do any damage using progesterone cream, as in make my insomnia worse if it's like estrogen? I'm in such a.lanic about everything, I just want to sleep. I think I have very high cortisol and this is what's stopping me from sleeping, I feel WIRED all of the time. Please help anyone?
