Is it Hypothalamus/Pituitary/Adrenal Axis that confuses the estrogen metabolism

by Arlen
(New York City)

My high estrogen was addressed with small homeopathic dose of progesterone which immediately converted to estrogen and caused
severe arthritic joint pains. How does one address high estrogen if progesterone converts to estrogen? Should I pursue further investigation into hypothalamic issues as contributing
to my estrogen dominance. When estrogen levels reach high levels, the pituitary can be "short-circuited" causing a cascade of symptoms. How should I proceed?
