Considerations
Excessive progesterone use can lead to too much testosterone. Testosterone that cannot be used by your body may convert to estrogen, leading back to the feminizing effects of the original estrogen dominance.

Hi Gerard I don't think you have any need to worry. A small amount of progesterone could possibly increase testosterone levels, but a high amount suppresses it's manufacture. As it does oestrogen. This is the reason I always suggest higher amounts than others do. You might like to read our page on Traumatic Brain Injury to see the amounts given to men. There is no 'correct' amount, please don't think in terms like that. The amount needed is directly related to the severity of the symptoms. I've given advice to men who have gynaecomastia, or Man Boobs. They need far higher amounts of progesterone than men with mild symptoms to suppress the excess testosterone or oestrogen. The gynaecomastia is often caused by testosterone therapy, as this in turn converts to oestrogen. I've given this answer on both your pages. Take care Wray

Did not happen to me at all

On this website I posted what I did. I am 64. I raised my testosterone from 155 to 590 taking 60 mg of topical progesterone a day and 100mg of pregnenolone a day. I take 50 mg of DHEA a week.

My estrogen started at 55 and went down to 10.
