I had my placenta encapsulated, and ever since I have started taking them I have had the WORST headache and can not sleep! I got about 4 hour of sleep Sunday night, 2 hours Monday night and could not fall asleep lastnight. Could it be my placenta pills?

I haven't had an adverse reaction, but maybe try taking a smaller dosage and see how you feel.

If you are still having issues, then discontinue and see if you feel better.

It is my belief that in some women taking the placenta pills can actually raise estrogen levels.  I actually believe that taking after my second birth caused estrogen dominance.  I don't think this happens for everyone but I certainly think it is a possibility.
