Please help - acne, progesterone, prolactin
Because of adult acne, my 22-year-old daughter had a saliva hormone test which found her progesterone levels low. so doctor prescribed progesterone cream 2 mls daily. Immediately her acne became dramatically worse. Her gynecologist (not doctor who prescribed the progesterone) said saliva tests are not valid and suggested strongly we take her off the progesterone cream and do blood hormone testing instead. Blood hormone testing found prolactin levels somewhat elevate (35 as opposed to normal which is 4.8 to 25 range). what does all this mean?
