Abnormally high level of progesterone after taking a low dose of progesterone cream
When I was originally tested (saliva test) for my hormones my progesterone level was very low at 5 and the normal range is 80-270. I was tested during my luteal phase. I started taking 40 mg progesterone cream and was just restested. My levels were so high it just said >2000. Does this seem crazy? No wonder I was a mess. Is this dangerous? I was taking the cream days 7-28 of my cycle. My doctor has now told me to take 1/2 the dose and only day 14-28 of my cycle. Im wondering if I shouldn't stop taking it for a bit to get my levels down. My labs also said my progesterone/estradiol is off the charts at 8101 and the normal range is 45-450. Does anyone have any help they can offer?
