Symptoms of too much progesterone?

Ok I looked to see what the symptoms of to much Progesterone is. But, all it has is depression and drowsiness. What other are there. Good english I know!! Any way my dr upped my progest. and I was doing good for a month on it OTC 2tsp with 22 mg in 1/4 so that makes 176 mg for the day. I break it up through the day. 1 tsp then 1/2 and 1/2. I had my levels checked in Dec. E was 184 all she told me was that P was way low. I take 1.25 mg E a day tranbuccal. 1 mg in am and .25 in afternoon.
Lately I notice that I am feeling real aggressive when I get stressed. So, I don't know which is which since that only falls under the T of to much. I just know one of the levels is off. I am getting my tension again in my back and my cough is coming back. That went away when I upped my P. But, it is back. I did just recently changed where I was applying the P. read that it builds up, so hopefully that will settle it.

I get very irritable, anxious, and cannot sleep when I use progesterone. For most people it is calming, but I know other women who have the same side effects as me. I had a TAH so fortunately I do not have to use it.

Re: Symptoms of too much progesterone?

Everyone is very different how they react to hormone levels. I found it was more trial & error based on how I was feeling that really figured things out. It depends on you and your Dr.'s views on progesterone with or without a uterus. It has worked well for me both with a uterus & without, as far as controlling hot flashes, night sweats & insomnia, but everyone is really individual. Try keeping a journal of symptoms, sometimes that can help figure things out..

Good luck!
