Does or Can Progesterone Metabolize Into Estrogen?
(Las Vegas, NV, USA)
I've been told by a few medical practitioners that progesterone can be metabolized into estrogen, and therefore they recommend keeping progesterone minimized. Obviously this contradicts with your position on making progesterone dominant, but do you know specifically what they're referring to, or what they may not be understanding? Possibly they're referencing the initial phase of using progesterone cream, where it excites estrogen receptors, but in either case, I like having as much basis and scientific information available, and can't seem to find any papers or information confirming this online. Any insight you have is most appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.
