Progesterone cream and Anxiety? HELP!!
(Los Angeles, CA )
I have some concerns. I'm 32 years old, TTC for the past 3 years. I have had 3 miscarriages in the past 3 years. I do have 1 a healthy 6 year old. I was using bio-identical progesterone cream for some time. It was the standard 2% cream, 2 times per day. 1/4 teaspoon. Which seemed to be working well. I got pregnant this past March, and immediately told my Dr. I think I needed progesterone to support the pregnancy. He was reluctant to test me for progesterone, even after 2 previous MC. Turns out my levels were very low, and I ended up miscarrying. I had a D&C and here I'am now. Over the past couple of months I have been trying to start the cream again and it's as if my body is rejecting it. I get bad headaches/migraines I have had very bad anxiety/panic attacks, emotional, tired, shaky, and the list goes on. Is it because I have become so estrogen dominant that the progesterone cream is waking up all of my estrogen receptors? I currently started a stronger cream 2.4% 1/4 teaspoon 2 times a day. I have had PCOS for several years, have always been estrogen dominant, and just had my galbladder removed last week. I just want to get pregnant, and I'm getting so discouraged. Please advise. Should I use more, use less? when will my symptoms go away??? thank you!
