Progesterone causing insomnia and anxious feelings
Has anyone experienced insomnia and anxious feelings with progesterone? I am currently doing bioidentical hormone pellet therapy (testosterone only) and was prescribed Progesterone too. I already had some bioidentical Progesterone cream that was highly rated and every time I try to use it I am awake forever at night and have strange anxiety type feelings during the day.
My doctor wanted me to take an oral progesterone from a compounding pharmacy but I am too afraid since the cream affected me so strangely. I know I will need it, if not now, in the future, but am afraid I won't be able to take it due to my reaction that I have each and every time I try the cream. My progesterone is only borderline low, so maybe I don't need it yet and that is why it makes me feel this way. I just missed my first period so have not tried it since this happened but was trying it the 2 weeks leading up to period, not for the whole month since I was still having periods. Any thoughts or suggestions?
