ZRT Lab test

(HI)

Hello,

I recently completed a Progesterone level test through ZRT labs and it showed I have High Progesterone (14,000) on Day 21 of 28 day cycle. I am 52 years old, still have regular periods but they were heavy, clots, migraines, and heart palpitations/chest heaviness or like pressure, hair loss, insomnia, etc.

I was using 40-60 mg daily of Emerita Progesterone Cream and Smokey Mountain Naturals Progesterone cream. Is this too much cream seeing as the lab test indicated by my levels were high?

Hi JR

It's strange that your progesterone level is high as you are not using the required amount of progesterone which is 100mg. Progesterone levels change during the cycle and rise considerably during the luteal phase. Women are often told that their progesterone levels are high but there is no cause for alarm. Please read Progesterone levels for more information. The main concern is whether or not all symptoms of excess estrogen have gone, in your case they have not, your are still suffering from Estrogen Dominance. You might also like to read the Hormone Testing page.

To answer you question, no the amount of progesterone that you are using is not too much, you should be using at least 100mg. Please also read the How to use Progesterone Cream page.

Hi,

To clarify, after I used Smokey Mountain Naturals at 40-60mg daily, my symptoms of migraines, insomnia, head bleeding, cramps, and chest heaviness went away. However, with that, the lab test returned high for Progesterone on Day 21. Is this ok?

Hi JR

As mentioned, there is no need to be concerned about your high progesterone level. As all your adverse estrogen dominance symptoms have cleared, I suggest that you continue using progesterone as you have been. Should your adverse symptoms start to return you will have to increase the amount of progesterone used.
