Aromatase and SHBG

by Susan jo

Hi Wray or anyone else,

I'm 51 year old female. I have a very very low progesterone/estrogen ratio. I was thinking only because of my age and symptoms to lower aromatase and increase SHBG. I know progesterone helps both but I was wondering if I used other sources to speed up my increasing progesterone. I feel like I need to surpress testosterone and estrogen only to increase progesterone without going broke with creams. What about vitamin e. I was also thinking of reducing methionine. Shoukd I do both, meaning lower aromatase and increase SHBG at the same time. I didn't realize androgens can be covered by aromatase into estrogen. .

Thank you and God bless
Susan Jo
