Starting dose for menstruating female

Hi Wray,
I am a 32 yo. Me menstruating female with ahistory of chronic illness including fatigue, insomnia and PMS. My dr prescribed a starting dose of 50mg am and 50mg pm of bioidentical progesterone in trouche form every day. However due to previous illness my BMI is only around 17 currently and I'm concerned that this dose might be too high for me. On the other hand I have suffered from symptoms of estrogen dominance my whole life so I don't want to stiimulate estrogen receptors even more. Can you please advise on an appropriate dose for me? Would it be safe to start on 50mg just at night, split 50mg over am and pm, or 50mg twice daily? Many thanks for your input.
