I am 32 and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in February after 2 years of being undiagnosed. I had a blood hormone test done in July and the results were Estradiol 391.4 pg/ml, testosterone, serum 47 ng/dl (8-48 range), FSH 2.3 mIU/dL and progesterone 13.2 ng/mL. After calculating the estradiol/progesterone ratio I noticed I was estrogen dominate with a result of 34:1. The tests were done 5-6 days before menstrual bleeding. Since I am still menstruating would you still recommend 100-200mg of progesterone cream a day? My symptoms are mild. I have 10-15 pounds of stubborn weight that will not budge (I'd been at the same weight for years until the hypothyroidism/estrogen dominance), light headed and foggy thinking, other than that I feel good. My thyroid ranges are where they should be too. I believe being on birth control for 4 years caused my issues, but it's just a guess. Now I am trying to revert all the damage done.
Thanks so much!
