I am 51 with almost normal periods of 24-27 days and have been on 20 mg of progesterone cream from a compound pharmacy for 2 years due to premenopausal symptoms. I start the cream on day 12 of my cycle and use for 10-12 days. I am 5'4", weigh 120 pounds, run 25-30 miles per week, travel quite frequently for my job which I am stressed about. I did the hormone saliva test on day 19 of my cycle and the results are:
Ratio of Pg/E2. 247
Cortisol (morning) 10.0
I would like to know if the results are good. I still feel some of the 'bad' symptoms. What can I do about the Cortisol? Should be progesterone be increased?
