How I thought I discovered the right progesterone level
by Wendy Lee
I'm 53 and have been on estradiol and progesterone cream for about 5 years.
I thought I was estrogen dominate and discontinued the 0.5 mg I was taking daily and upped my progesterone cream to everyday 1/4tsp (1.25ml). I just received the saliva results and was surprised that my estrogen level was 0.8 and my progesterone level was 2449. They recommended that I stop the progesterone cream. I feel that I should start taking the estradiol again and just cut back on the progesterone cream.
I feel great so I was surprised to see the high level come back on the test. I'm confused to say the least.
