Thank you so much for your response, it helped a lot. A couple of things I forgot to tell you, is that 3 years ago I had my hormones tested and I had adrenal fatigue, with very little cortisol produced. I was high in DHEA and supplementing with progesterone at the time and the estrogen/progesterone ratio was high. They mentioned insulin resistance. Now 3 years later like I had written, my ratio to estrogen/progesterone is low, my DHEA and testosterone are high and I don't have hardly any of the symptoms of PCOS ,, but they mentioned insulin resistance and I know I have sugar issues. I get an immediate headache when I eat sugar, it makes me tired ad achey in my limbs. I have always had a lot of body and facial hair as I am Greek and it's in my family. I have uped my progesterone and feel a bit better in a week. I do need to finish my oral micronized progesterone pills because I paid for them. They are 200 mg, so how much do you think I am actually getting? I will switch to cream when I run out of the pills. And I have a tube of Progest left. I think I still have adrenal issues, cause I often feel jumpy and irritable and my adrenaline feels like it's going when I get upset. But last test my adrenals through saliva test were within normal range. Just wanted to fill in those gaps to fill the bigger picture out. I SOOOO very much appreciate your response. The lady my mother in law paid for hormone consulting didn't even respond to me. So I am so very grateful to you and your site. Already checked the "Estrogen Alternative" out from the library and read most of it. Excellent suggestion on reading!
