Hi-I had my estradiol and progesterone levels checked on day 21 of my cycle. I am 44. My estradiol levels came back as 166 and my progesterone level came back as 7 which is low and makes me estrogen dominant. I started taking DIM Detox a few months ago (200 mg daily) and it worked GREAT, weight that would NOT budge finally started to come off and then the weight loss suddenly stopped. I started a progesterone cream (the brand is Progesto-life by SM Nutrition).
I started using 1/2 tsp TWICE a day and I feel like I am gaining weight! The bottle says to use 1/4 tsp TWICE a day. Am I using too much or too little? It's only been a few days but I can feel the weight coming back on.
My naturopath has been surprisingly unhelpful. I KNOW it's the hormonal imbalance that is causing me to either gain weight or making it IMPOSSIBLE to lose weight. I have had a ton of other blood work done and everything else is normal.
Also which progesterone cream brand do you recommend and how much should I use daily?
