Progesterone Dominance Symptoms
Took prometrium (micronized progesterone) for 6 weeks straight for perimenopause symptoms, left me with symptoms of estrogen dominance.?
Other reasons: The menopause transition is a highly specialized treatment area. Hormones changes are very common and fluctuations very high. There are also a lot of misconceptions about what to treat. Estrogen can vary from very low to very high amounts over just a few days. It really requires a specialist to guide someone through it. Prometrium (micronized progesterone) will not affect estrogen levels generally at all. ...Read more
What are the symptoms of estrogen dominance/low progesterone? I am 44 possibly perimenopause. Spotting btw periods/clotty periods. Tsh & pap normal.
See below: In women struggling through peri-menopausal transition, cycles where you do not ovulate are common. This is similar to being stuck in the first half of your cycle where estrogen is the dominant hormone. This can be balanced by either taking birth control pills, or using Progesterone (provera (medroxyprogesterone) for example) during the latter half of each cycle. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

OTC progesterone: The bad: they rarely contain progesterone, when they do you don't know how much is being delivered, 'estrogen dominance' is not a disease or well-defined abnormailty.

Why do you get esteogen dominance from being in Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) if th ingredient is progesterone?
Some confusion: Did your gyn test you and tell you that there is too much estrogen? Most doctors don't believe this theory, since it has no medical research behind it. Most people who promulgate it are self serving. Anyway, the conversation about "estrogen dominance" is usually centered around the symptoms of menopause. Don't worry about this subject, it's not real. ...Read more
Does high androstenidione level in a girl with pcos imply that she has estrogen dominance or low progesterone?
Unclear: Usually, patients with pcos have normal adrenal hormone levels- normal androstenedione, normal dhea and normal 17 hydroxyprogesterone- the most common finding is isolated high free testosterone. The problem is lack of ovulation and excessive production of male hormones in the ovary. I would ask your doctor to clarify the elevated adrenal levels. She may need more evaluation. ...Read more

Why does low progesterone or estrogen dominance cause acne in women with pcos? How does that happen?
Hyperandrogenism: Acne in women with pcos is caused by hyperandrogenism (too much male-type hormones) including testosterone, produced by the ovaries. Insulin resistance promotes hyperandrogenism. Treatments include Insulin sensitizers like metformin if you're trying to conceive, or birth control pills and anti-androgens like spironolactone if not ttc. 'low progesterone' occurs in women with pcos who don't ovulate. ...Read more

Test results show I have low progesterone. I've been dealing with the symptoms and finally had several tests ran on the possibilities. I've read where zinc can increase progesterone. Is this effective?
Progesterone: The most common symptom is irregular menses caused by non-ovulatory cycles. Another may be sustained spotting for a week or more. The action of progesterone is to prepare the lining of the womb for a potential implantation (pregnancy). When there is a lack of sufficient progesterone the lining degenerates and various withdrawal bleeding episodes can occur, ...Read more

Hi I'm a 25 year old woman and showing bad symptoms of progesterone deficiency im not sure what to do. Don't have insurance and im scared?
Symptoms in medicine: Hi. Here's a very well time tested and proven philosophy of medicine: there is no symptom specific to any single disease, and no disease specific to any single symptom. So when you say someone has symptoms of a rare condition (e.g., progesterone deficiency) bear in mind those same symptoms can be seen WITHOUT that condition, with some other condition, or with no identifiable disease at all. ...Read more
