I was wondering about this statement:
On the other hand if she had an oestradiol level of 5.5pmol/L and a progesterone level of 979pmol/L she would feel wonderful, and yet these are also in the 'normal' range.
but if you recommend 600:1, this is only 178:1 !
and the chart you posted is :
17ß-oestradiol Progesterone Luteal
5.5 - 13.2 pmol/L 259 - 979 pmol/L
are these units correct, are they both pmol/L? or is one of them supposed to be nmol/L
i am asking because when i do my conversion,
388 pmol/L estrogen
45 nmol/L progesterone x1000= 45000 pmol/L
and i certainly do not feel great on that, and it would seem that my progesterone level is enormous compared to what you have posted. so i am not sure if your units are correct, or if my system is messed up. (i spent a lot of time on the math !!)
if it's my system that is messed up, than i have a huge amount of progesterone and estrogen according to your chart.
so i'm confused
