What is an optimal E2 level in the luteal phase if you are considering trying to get pregnant?
(New York, NY)
Hi-I started taking DIM in the Fall when my E2 levels were too high and my PG levels low.
I added a progesterone cream recently and my PG is now 14 but my E2 is now 114.
I plan to continue on the progesterone cream but I don't want my E2 levels to go too low either.
Is 114 considered too low? I've noticed some hair thinning as my E2 levels have gone down! Not happy about that.
I tested on Day 20 of my cycle.
What are E2 levels supposed to be on Day 20 of your cycle if you're trying to get pregnant and don't want any of the negative symptoms of too low estrogen levels?
I know the ratio matters but I don't want to deal with low estrogen symptoms either.
Also wondering if I should replace the DIM with a broccoli sprout and/or calcium D glucarate supplement so the E2 doesn't get out of control again.
Any advice would be sooooooo appreciated! Thank you!
