Latest labs--conversion help, seems high progesterone
My last labs for progesterone: 0.6 ng/ml, estradiol: 36 pg/ml
I have been on and off varying doses of all three hormones for the past 5 years. Before this test, I stopped my compounded RX of 200mg of progesterone and 2mg of bi-est and went on OTC progesterone 20mg for about two months with no estrogen, I felt about the same, no improvement, but nothing worse. Then I used some OTC estrogen, 1mg of bi-est for about a month.
The day before the test, I had another migraine, so I put on 25mg of a compounded progesterone, and 1.5mg of bi-est and the above were the results the next day.
It seems to me, if I convert the estradiol 36pg/ml to ng/ml it is 0.036 which is much lower than the progesterone.
When I look at symptoms i have many low estrogen, and some low progesterone, and low cortisol.
I have one ovary and the other is barely visible on sonogram. I have had only 1 cycle every 10, 11, 9 months in the last three years, even when I cycled in the progesterone for 14 days, while on low doses of estradiol. I didn't seem to get cycles no matter what doses I was on.
So it seems by these serum labs, I'm progesterone dominant?
When I check my labs on 200mg of progesterone and 2mb of bi-est for several weeks my labs were:
progesterone 1.4 ng/dl, estradiol 82.7 pg/ml, And again if I convert the estradiol to ng/dl, it's much lower than the progesterone.
I know there is the other formula used, but that is only for saliva, correct? I only have serum results and it appears i must be progesterone dominant?
