What can I do do, if progesterone cream makes me tired the morning
it is said, that progesterone cream should be taken at least twice daily, but if I take it in the morning, I experience drowsiness. I am in my 4th cycle using it, so my body hasn't adjusted yet and I think I didn't take enough at first too, although I experienced relief in my PMS - I took about 150 mg per day. Since I started, my period is coming a week earlier. I am 52 and still had a normal cycle before starting with the cream. I turned to Progesterone cream because of extremely (really extremely!!!) heavy flows and severe PMS. The doctor told me, that my endometrium is just extremely "thick", everything else is ok (sorry, for my english, it is not my native language)
This time now, the flow is heavier than ever before (about 40ml ever 3 hours).
So actually I have two questions - how can I cope with the drowsiness, if I take it in the morning, and should I take a higher dosage from day 12 on (that is the time I always started applying it)?
Would be very thankful for help/suggestions.
Thank you and kind regards,
