Hormonal insomnia extremeAnd what is freaking me out is that all my prior "coping strategies and remedies" are not working!
I'm so scared. I'm familiar with this dark road of insomnia and I won't walk it again :(.
My doctor has diagnosed me with low progesterone hormone levels. I have suffered with this for over a year now. My symptoms are:
-Anxiety even when I am having a normal low-stress day.
-I am 32 years old and have had 2 miscarriages (one at 18 weeks gestation and one at 12 weeks).
-The second miscarriage occurred a little over one month ago.
-During the pregnancy I have minimal anxiety and no insomnia
-during the pregnancy I had an extremely high sex drive (for example, I had sex 5 times with my husband in one day).
-before and after the miscarriage (now) I have very low libido and no interest with sex
-I have regular menstrual cycles but I do spot-bleed a few days before the flow of menstrual blood begins.
-I get pregnant VERY easily but I miscarry after 12 weeks.
-I had 3 live births in a row so this is secondary infertility
-my husband is good kind and supportive.
-yesterday my right ovary really ached. I think I ovulated from it and based on past experience the pain may indicate an ovarian cyst.
I'm so sorry for the desperate nature of my post. But to be clear the insomnia is much worse Than before...this general decline was triggered by my first period since the miscarriage.
I happen to have a postpartum follow up with my Obgyn Monday. She prescribes bioidentical hormones and those are looking pretty awesome right now as far a coping strategy goes. And I HATE it that I'm there at that place where those look tempting because I know they are worthless as far as my long term health goes. But I'm very discouraged that i will even find my remedy. My body is terrible I know.
I have see more than one homeopath about this issue.
