Post hyst lab tests
I am 41 years old. I had a total hyst (including ovaries) almost 8 weeks ago due to suspected ovarian cancer. Surgery found no cancer, but an entire abdomen filled with endometriosis. I am now researching hormonal imbalances as I am still so fatigued I can barely function. Other problems include hypothyroidism (which constantly fluctuates) and obesity.
In my research, I have found that a 200:1 or 300:1 Progesterone/estrogen ratio is ideal. You believethat 600:1 is best, based on saliva testing.
I have recently got results to my bloodwork, and if I did my math right, my ratio seems unusually low, around 3:1:
I have a couple of tubes of Natpro that I bought a while ago. I never did the research before to know how to use it, but I certainly need it now. How do you suggest I proceed?
BTW, both my gyn oncologist and Primary care doc prescribed Prempro. I tried it and hated it. As you can see, I don't need anymore estrogen!
