I've been following your site for a long time. I am 43, still menstruating (and used your cream about 2 years ago and found beneficial effects. I noticed less fatigue, anxiety, depression and cramps within a few days of using it). But I haven't been using it more recently because I could not find a doctor who believed in it.
I just found one who agreed to check my levels. He had me do a blood test through Quest Diagnostics. It measured my estradiol as being 240 pg/ml. It was done on 4/21 and I had my period during that time. The start date was 4/16. I tried to look through your results to see if that shows estrogen dominance. But I did not find a test that correlated. I also saw your results show the person's progesterone level as well and that my test only measured my estradiol. Could you tell me if the test I got done is ok and how to tell if I am in or out of range? I have osteopenia as well and believe that it could be because my progesterone level is not high enough but am not sure. Can you give me guidance on how to interpret this?
In addition, I have been keeping track of how many days in between my periods and they go from April through July as 25, 23, 22, 20, 25, 23, 24 days. How would I figure out the last 14 days of my cycle for using the cream given that mine is not the same number of days each time?
Lastly, my doctor says I might have adrenal fatigue and had me do this ASI saliva test. Could low progesterone affect your adrenals as well?
Thanks for your help.
