Confused about Saliva Results
I just received my test results for estrodial, Progesterone and Testosterone and I am a little puzzled by them. I am 53, have not had menses for 60 days and I have many of the symptoms of estrogen dominance... bloating, weight gain, cravings, mood swings, hot flashes etc. I was using progesterone cream and stopped two weeks before the test. I am puzzled because the test results show that my estrodiol is low 3.5(range 1.0- 9.0 pg/ml) but the progesterone level is 190(range 50-250 pg/ml) so by this I am not estrogen dominant.
I noticed that both units are the same, however I thought that estrodiol is usually measured in ng's.
I would be grateful if you could shed some light on this, because I was certain the test results would show I was low in progesterone. I don't know if I should continue to use the cream or should I use a small dose.
Thanks so much!
