I'm lost in this, I found our website after searching about my lab results (shown below)
TESTOSTERONE, TOTAL, MS= 700 250-1100 (ng/dL)
TESTOSTERONE, FREE= 90 46.0-224.0 (pg/mL)
ESTRADIOL= 80 < OR = 39 (pg/mL)
PROGESTERONE= NOT DETECTABLE <0.21 0.28 - 1.22 ng/ml
CORTISOL, A.M.= 10 4.0-22.0(mcg/dL)
Testosterone to Estrogen Ratio= 80, range 20-40
Progesterone to Estrogen Ratio= 2.56, range 200-500
Lookin at the lab results alone, it is obvious, looking a the ratios it does not look good either, so searching the internet I found about progesterone which I bought, hopefully it is good(https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C4MQ7JP/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza), I have been using it for 3 days, 5 mg in the morning and 5 before bed, at least that what I found 10mg total for men each day.
After reading several posts in you website, I noticed that in some cases mose for women), and up to 200mg in some cases.
I do not know how fast should I see improvements, but so far it is the same.
I would like to know your opinion in my case, I have tried everything naturally, herbs, diet, exercise since I found about this 1 year ago, but unfortunately my estradiol got 20 points higher.
Before going into replacement therapy, I going to give a chance to bioidentical progesterone, and if it does not work, Arimidex. I just want an opinion of someone who has experience with this. I tried to talk to my doctor about this, it was hard for my doctor to test for hormones, until I demanded it from him after everything I had read, and I was annoyed at his contempt for not trusting him it was nothing, and trusting in pseudoscience, after the results came in (me knowing that I had something wrong with any of those hormones), he gave me a call, told me I was hypoestrogenic and that I should see an specialist, by the way, the progesterone test had to be done by my self because he did not wanted to do that one, so I found out that Estradiol was to high and progesterone basically non existent, naturally I was able to up my testosterone, from 248, to the value shown above, but I'm tired of feeling like this, I step into replacement hormone clinics several times, just inches away from the needle, but I was not convinced since they told me what they were going to inject me with would solve my problems without explanation. If I cannot do it naturally, I will probably do it at some point, but for now, I want to try this.
How long until I see improvements?
How long will I need to use it? for life?
What is the best does? I still have not found a post about someone with that much estrogen not on TRT...
should I supplement with something else? Pregnenolone? DHEA?
is it good to use Arimidex too?
Thank you for "listening" to me, I'm looking forward to you comments. Thanks again...
