DHEA PROGESTERONE ESTRIOL TESTOSTERONE ? Too Much
I had labs done over 6 months ago. I am 53. My blood levels of Estrogens, Progesterone DHEA and Testosterone were way below normal for a women of 53. I am 10 years Menopause. My skin had become so dry and wrinkled in a year. Had severe vaginal atrophy. Medical Drs could not offer me anything but prescription patch which I refused.
I started taking DHEA 10 mg and 20 mg Progesterone Cream once a day. I started putting on weight. 8 lbs in two months... Which one is causing the Weight gain? Do I really need DHEA pill?
Also, neither one of them helped with the atrophy so I started using 1 mg of Estriol Oil Vaginally and what a HUGE
difference. and a Natural low dose of Testosterone. just within the last few weeks.
I will be having Saliva Tests in a few weeks. I think
the DHEA and Progesterone are causing the problem. Should I increase the Progesterone and drop the DHEA?
