How Are You Supposed To Work Out The Progesterone And Estradiol Ratio To Know If Your Thyroid Results Are Normal
How are you supposed to work out the progesterone and estradiol ratio to know if your thyroid results are normal?
You do not have to: While the ratio of Progesterone and Estradiol will affect how you feel, it will not substantially affect the thyroid tests. However, oral Estradiol will increase thyroxine binding globulin and thus increase the T4 level but the free T4 will remain stable. Because it will also increase the risk of blood clots it is advisable to use a transdermal, buccal or sublingual form of estrogen replacement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends on lab: Different laboratories can have reference values for LH, FSH, progesterone, and estradiol that differ from each other. Moreover, the nature of the test can have an impact on those reference values. The lab at which the tests were run will need to be approached for the type of test that was used and the reference values for that specific lab. ...Read more

Lab reference ranges: Levels of these hormones are only as reliable as their test kits. One lab may use a different method for detection than another. You may not be able to compare values between different labs. Labs also set their normal ranges based on multiple tests. You need to discuss these hormones with an endocrinologist as they're trained to understand the different testing methods. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have started my clomid, estradiol and I start prometrium (micronized progesterone) sunday, how soon do they work?
Right away: Clomid should work the first cycle it's started.

I had my blood work done and my estradiol level was < 5 pg/ml and my progesterone was 1.22 ng/ml. What does this mean?
Anovulation: Unfortunately, it seems from this limited information, that you may not be ovulating due to the very low progesterone level and especially your estradiol level. You will need to have a very serious conversation with your doctor or ob/gyn about pursuing an aggressive follow up of tests to find out why your ovaries are not working correctly. I wish you all the best. ...Read more

Relevance ? : Do you have regular periods? If so then love level of your progesterone during the luteal phase is not clinically useful information.

Last month had IUI with femara. Was placed on progesterone and estrace (estradiol). Got period and today is day 20 no ovulation. Is this normal? I always ovulate
Ovulation: Ovulation occurs consistently about 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. If your cycles are irregular then predicting is not possible. A home ovulation kit from any pharmacy will be more helpful. ...Read more
I have normal cortisol, progesterone, and estradiol but high testosterone and very high DHEAS (double normal range). I am also a type 1 diabetic and seem to be insulin resistant (hbA1C is 8.2). Could insulin resistance be the cause of elevated DHEAS?
Yes...but: This day in age we are seeing some people with type 1 diabetes and features of insulin resistance, polycystic ovarian syndrome, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes features. This sounds like PCOS, believed to usually be caused concern by insulin resistance. I am also concerned over a high prolactin, thyroid disease, or congenital adrenal hyperplasia and these should be completely checked too. ...Read more
History of anorexia but now i have my periods. FSH, LH, and estradiol normal but progesterone is too low in luteal phase. Severe dry eyes. Why?
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 ...Read more
