Estrogen level in blood

Ok I have been reading on Estrogen dominance and think I have that figured out. I have an appt with my doctor again on Friday. I am taking printed materials about the levels for estrogen if your in menopause. It says FSH 50mlU and greater. Estradiol level less than 50pg/ml or no mentrual for one year. I remember the nurse telling me mine was 5 so I am assuming she meant FSH since she said I wasn't in menopause. But at the same time on my blood work the doctor did have down to check estradiol. So I wonder why she didn't tell me what that number was as its involved here also. I tried to find on the internet what the normal I level for Progesterone on a blood test but couldn't find it. I want a blood test for Progesterone and Testosterone I hope he lets me get that also checked. I am going to print out some of the messages heard referring to using Progesterone cream and let him know what other doctors are doing and see where it gets me. Linda

so hard to get an accurate reading of estradiol during perimenopause since the body stores estrogen for the declining of it through ovaries. Just accept it and vent here, you'll be okay. Don't look for accurate blood readings until you are fully into menopause. And even then, it can still be a yoyo.
