So confused about the hormones
I have asked a previous question about progesterone and acid reflux before. But I would like to start at the beginning of my story and maybe you can get a better insight and give me some advice. I went to a alternative medicine dr. in July, 2012. My labwork came back and my estrogen was at a level of 1.2, DHEA Sulfate progesterone (85) <0.5., Vit D 48, Free Testosterone was low at 1.2. I am so confused with reading these results and I hope you can understand them. Thyroid 2.6. This dr. had a list of vitimans I should take along with .50 Estrogen patch and 200 mg. Pill form of progesterone. I am very petite and these were way too much, breast tenderness and depression and not wanting to wake up. I then sent all this paperwork to my obgyn and they lowered the patch to 0.25 and 100 mg progeserone pill at night, which I do not like taking. I get dizzy if I take it too early and feel just as tired in the morning as when I went to bed. I think I just need to go off all and start over somehow. I was cutting the patch in 1/2 and seem to be doing ok other than could cry at the top of a hat so I recently started using the whole patch. Ill see how this works. But I do not like using the progesterone pill at night. Please tell me what I should do, stop and start all over again or what? The main reason I started this was I was so dry at the vaginal area I felt cut sometimes the tissues were so thin. And also the hot flashes were pretty bad. Just all out of whack. I know I am forgetting the something to tell you but the most important I think I remembered.
