question re periods and progesterone cream
(Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia)
I scored 72 on the questionnaire!! I started the cream about 2 weeks ago, I found this information re progesterone cream 5 months after a nervous breakdown (my recovery story is here: https://newshoots.com.au/nervous-breakdown/ its been a long and slow return from a kind of madness. I only turned a corner when I started the cream. 2 weeks ago. Im now having a period, (Im 45 years old and I am sure Im in peri menopause) and i wanted to know, can I take the cream through the period??? I got the first bit of my period yesterday and didn't take the cream and OMG, the headache was back all migraine and madness and wanting to go crazy. so i put some cream on, and today my period is definitely here, but I feel like I'm losing the plot, my mind feels fragile, I just feel like Im going to lose my mind.
so, 1. can i take the progesterone through my period?
2. is it normal to feel like you are going crazy, like a pressure in the head and i feel like i have no control at all, like when i was a teenager and i thought i was just going to scream if it felt any worse.
its the mental instability that I cant stand, even worse than the horrific headaches. my dr testing came back normal levels of hormones but it doesn't make sense. I'm just using the cream, the truth is i don't want to come off the cream to get the saliva test.
I feel like i need some guidance on all this. xo
