Estrogen levels - help
Can you help me??? I'm 46. Since starting natural progesterone cream 2 months ago at 300mg, I've just had my bloods taken and my progesterone has not increased at all, but my estrogen has increased 10 fold and i have felt dreadful. My estrogen is at 2089 pmol/l. Two previous blood tests showed my estrogen around 200-300 pmol/l and I felt bad then.
Why has progesterone increased my estrogen so much. What do I do??? I've read that things can get worse before better but I never expected my estrogen to go so high. Is this a normal reaction???? Will it come back down with consistent use of the cream. I thought your receptors became more sensitive to estrogen when starting prog, I had no idea your blood levels actually increased.
Please help. Thanks
