Estrogen dominance - confused
I've been told by my naturopath that I'm estrogen dominant. Problems started 2 years ago when my periods first stopped. I started with a frozen shoulder and then muscle pains, neck, gums, headaches, interstitial cystitis, vaginal dryness and atrophy, weird stabbing pains all over, eye problems, hair falling out, sinusitis, ear pain, hip pain, severe knee pain to the point that I couldn't walk, panic attacks and depression.
I had bloodwork done and my levels show vitD levels are fine (I do take vit D2 and K2), oestradiol 55, progesterone 3, testosterone 0.7, fhs levels 68.8.
I did not want to take hrt so went to see a bio identical hormone consultant in London who put me on estrogen, progesterone and testosterone creams. I've been on them for 2 weeks and feel a bit better but I'm wondering if I'm doing the right thing and should I be using progesterone and testosterone only and not estrogen. The consultant said I should be also using a small amount of estrogen.
Can anyone advise please?
