doing a saliva test and using progesterone
(Leiden, The Netherlands)
I did a saliva test before starting with progesterone cream, because i wanted a "baseline" and then found out the test was lost! while they sent me a new one, i was disappointed because i had wanted to know my baseline, but had already started using the cream. So i stopped for 3 weeks to a month (vacation etc) and then took the new test. My question is - is the progesterone level reported in the saliva my baseline, or would i have had to stop with the cream for longer than i did. I was only using the "physiological dose" recommended by Dr. Lee (1/8 tsp twice a day). I am in menopause. Anyone have the answer ?
