Progesterone and postpartum anxiety/depression and insomnia
(Auckland NZ )
I’m 10 weeks postpartum with my second child. Suffering from anxiety and insomnia, same happened with my first.
My Dr has given me progesterone (bioavailabile in capsule form).
I’m curious on dose. My Dr doesn’t know too much about it. Capsules are 100mg and I’ve done them rectally after reading this site. Dr recommend 100mg a day at night. I’m thinking I probably need 200mg morning and night - 400mg per day?
I have only ever suffered this intense anxiety postpartum, last time I ended up on anti anxiety meds which didn’t even help. I am certain this is hormonal.
Thanks in advance.
