Progesterone and sleep
by Jacquelyn Brown
(Flower Mound, TX)
I've increased my progesterone cream over the last 4 weeks from 100 mg to 200 mg (10% cream). Being at 200 mg the last week I have started to wake around 3 am and I'm feeling warm too! Do I need to increase or decrease? I take 5,000 mg of D3 everyday. I also take chewable GABA, 10 mg melatonin and 1200 mg of magnesium at night. I'm postmenopausal at 55.
For the past year I had been on a vaginal cream routine with al l three hormones with the progesterone at 40 mg. I gained significant weight and my blood pressure was high. Four weeks ago I returned to the pellet method with a low dose of both estrogen and testosterone.
Thank you for your help.
