Progesterone Cream and Insomnia
I've had sleep issues for about 5 years, but the last 2 years it has been chronic….sleeping only 2-3 hours per night. Lack of sleep has effected every area of my life. I tried progesterone cream last month 5 days before my period started and I slept 8 hours each night! I stopped using it once my period started, and I'm back to square one with not sleeping. I am awaiting hormonal test results. My doctor said that he didn't think my test would show up as needing progesterone (I'm 49) since my only symptom is insomnia and I still have regular periods….But looking all over the internet and reading a couple of books by Dr. John Lee, it's obvious to me that's what the problem is! I am not sure what days of of my cycle I should be using the cream. I've read to start at day 6, 7, and 15. Any suggestions?
