Can progesterone only pills be used to treat pcos and estrogen dominance where the androstenedione levels are high but testosterone levels are normal?

Not really : Progesterone only can be used to trigger menstrual cycles but not to create a rebalance of the imbalanced pcos hormones.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
