Prenatal and postpartum depression
I am suffering from postpartum insomnia and depression. I've been thinking about trying progesterone cream to see if it would help. My only concern is that I also suffered from anxiety, depression and insomnia all through my third trimester of pregnancy when supposedly progesterone is really high, so I wondered if my mood issues were caused by high progesterone. Is there any chance it would help me to take progesterone now that I'm 4 weeks postpartum? I really need something and I'd rather not go on ssri medication. Thank you for any responses. I just really want to get some sleep, stop crying and be able to enjoy my life again.
