Re: Natural Progesterone Cream - Question
While your Dr. is right about not having a baseline from when you were 25, he IS wrong about testing. There are a few labs out there where you can purchase directly through them, do the test and then mail in for results. I do think it is best to do this with the guidance of a Dr. who is familiar with the testing and reading results.
The problem with using progesterone cream without testing is that you don't know if you are low and how low. Also, are you low in estrogen? If you are and you start using progesterone cream, then your homrones will be even more unbalanced. Balance is the key. Progesterone works mainly for women who are estrogen dominant. Some of the symptoms are the same for low and high estrogen, so symptoms alone are not necessarily a clue.
Your pursuit of finding the answers you want may lie with another Dr.
