Follow up visit: If you are now having periods and your FHS and LH are normal then things are probably ok. We would not normally treat a low Progesterone level in these circumstances. If you wanted to treat it then you could go on birth control pills. This would normalize both your Estrogen and Progesterone. A primary care doctor can evaluate your dry eyes
