Can hormone replacement therapy pill, especially Cyclo-Progynova interference with blood lab test result (fasting glucose, blood cholesterol, etc.)?
Hormone replacement: Any and all medications can be related to blood test results but, unless your doctor has suspected and discussed your blood work with you, your lab results should be OK.

Invalid: There is no validity to following blood estrogen levels in order to adjust the dosage of hormone replacement. At age 32, I would not expect that you should need hormone replacement, unless you went through early menopause or had surgical removal of your ovaries. In postmenopausal women the dose is adjusted based on symptoms (hot flashes, sleep issues), not blood levels. ...Read more
YES: As the body ages, the levels of hormones diminish.

Eating 3 toxin-free balanced meals with snacks is best. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Obgyn says hormone levels do not show perimenopause, estrogen high. Is this test definitive or could results fluctuate day 2 day with hormone levels?
Regular periods?: If you are having regular periods, you are not perimenopausal. If your periods are irregular, you have hirsutism, and are overweight, you may have polycystic ovarian syndrome. Estrogen levels fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle. An FSH level is a better indicator of perimenopause, and will become elevated as you enter menopause. ...Read more
