I've never felt well since beginning the progesterone in March as you know. This is Alison. Anyhow, I started again in May at the 100-200mg amount cream and by June, I was insane.
I had a test done by genova diagnostics called complete hormones.
My estrogen metabolites were very high-not methylating well!
Estradiol, estriol and estrone were at lowest end of range-like none.
My dhea was high
My Progesterone was off the charts!
New doctor put me on 2-5mg prog crm. and .025-.05mg ESTRADIOL!
Daily dosing btw. no cycling.
Been 3 months and feel like hell! Can barely tolerate either at this point. Lots of flushing without the estradiol and belly pains like heat with it. Honestly, I can't tell which is doing that although the prog. has done that in the past.
As usual, I'm told to figure it out on my own-the dosing. I wish i never set foot on this path. It has been a year.
How do i get off the estradiol?
I'm scared as can be to start 100-200mg again and I have no idea how estrogen metabolite-the bad ones-and low estradiol should be interpreted...is this estrogen dominance????Please tell me.
I just took a test from zrt-cortisol(4) plus estradiol and prog, dhea,testosterone.
Perhaps you can help me figure this out when i get the results back in a couple of days.
Vit. D good, ferritin a little low and thyroid seems okay.
I know the questions are scattered but please try to help out. I'm way scattered. omg!
