Estrogen upset my hormone balance
I'm 44 and desperately want another child.
A little history. 1999-went off bc pills and had so many symptoms of menopause I thought I was going crazy. Took Estrologic for 2 mths. & it seemed to straighten everything out. Fell pg in 2000-had c-sect.Ectopic pg in 2002. Fell pg with 2nd in 2003-another c-sect. In 2007-miscarried. Saliva test in 2009. estradiol-result 2.1,range 1.0-9.9pg/ml. Progesterone result 91,range 50-250pg/ml. testosterone result 19,range 15-45pg/ml. The test was done in the luteal phase.
They said estradiol and testosterone were both in the low end of range. Would this cause a miscarriage? I know I ovulate because I take my temp and have a 14 day luteal phase but have noticed that I spot about 3 or 4 days before it actually comes. Last month I started taking the estrologic just after my period ended, then started 1ml progesterone cream at night 4 days after I ovulated. I got my period but I spotted 4 days before. It's weird but seems I feel better during my period and have more of a sex drive than any other time of the month. I'm taking the estrologic because I know I have symptoms of peri-menopause but I also want to have another child.
Do I really need to be taking it or will the progesterone cream alone level things out and if so how much should I actually be using now and if I do fall pg should I still use the same amout. As of now I am using a Progesterone cream (progesterone 100% pure usp grade-1134 mg per 2 oz yielding 6%derived from soy) I only have 1 jar left (the company has been shut down). I will be ordering progesterone cream from your company.
Just wondering are all progesterone creams alike? Thank you sincerely for any info you can share with me.
