Side effect after using progestrone cream

by Grace


I am 36 years old and have debilitating pain due to adenomyosis. I do not want to take progestrone pill. So i have started using natural progestrone cream a week ago and had terrible side effects.

This cream no parade, contains 500 mg USP progestrone per ounce. It also contain wild yam root extract in the ingredient list.

First 3 days I used I had insomnia. Which after I become very sleepy at daytime even though on the 5th night I was able to get 10 hours sleep. And my sugar cravings started appearing (I only have those cravings 1 week before menstruation and not 3 week prior).

I am using 60 mg daily (suggested by Dr John Lee) in hope to give relief to the crippling pain I have from adenomyosis but these symtoms are worrying me and I wonder if I should stop?

I have stuck to anti inflammatory diet and eliminate chemical products for 3.5 months now before I use the cream.

Hopefully you can give me some advice please?
