Progesterone and vivid dreams — The Bump
Trouble TTC

Progesterone and vivid dreams

I've been on progesterone for two days, and I had the most intense dreams the last two nights.  This morning, I googled it, and it looks like it's definitely a thing that happens!  My dreams weren't good or bad, just weird, and very very vivid.

(I mean, there was a 1980's co-ed touch football game where the field slowly revolved, so players had to account for the location of the goals changing, but it was interrupted by the women declaring that they were going on strike for some very important political protest.  And everyone had super authentic 1980s clothes and hair.)

Are you on progesterone, and experiencing intense dreams?  What bizarre story did your subconscious brain tell you last night?

  • I had way wacked out dreams on progesterone (I have been on it four different times) . They were quite amusing, but very vivid.

    Are you taking yours right before bed?

  • Yes! I always have really vivid, intense dreams on progesterone.   In fact I hardly ever remember my dreams, but on medicated cycles I remember every detail.   I once dreamed that I was so homesick for my childhood house that I rented a Uhaul and tried to tie the house to it and drive it to where I live now.   Then the new owner came out and started screaming at me in a Middle eastern language.  I remembered it so clearly that I tried to google the language to see if they were real words or not. :-)

     Are you taking yours right before bed?
    Yes, I am.  I take it vaginally, so that seems to be the best time to give my body a chance to absorb it, while I'm horizontal.
