Vitamin D elevated progesterone on saliva test
(Kansas City, mo)
I am using zero progesterone, but just began taking 10,000iu with vitamin k (mk7) & magnesium oil since they are the cofactors to D. Just got my saliva test results back & my vitamin D is 41 & my saliva is 1198. Low D & crazy high progesterone! From everything I've read on here, that progesterone number would be what someone has when using progesterone. But I haven't touched that stuff in 6 months. Have you ever heard of vitamin D doing this? I know you said in one post that vitamin D & progesterone have incredibly similar properties. I can tell you that I also have similar symptoms as when I used progesterone cream. My feet have slight edema & I have zero sex drive. Again, I'm not using any progesterone cream. This is all vitamin D.
I've been at this vitamin D thing for a year, but this is the first time using the cofactors to D. At one point I was in the sun every single day for a minimum for 1.5hrs in the summer. Sometimes 5 hours if swimming w kids. Zero sunscreen & taking 5,000iu vitD. Got my test results back & my D was only at 54- low. I could not believe it! So I bumped it up to 40,000iu for a month & my cycle came 2 times that month. Backed down to 10,000iu & had a 28 day cycle that month which is not my normal.. Stayed on 10,000iu bc I feared toxicity & everything went back to 34day cycle. Again, zero progesterone cream during any of this. This is all Vitamin D.
