When your hormone levels are out of balance, is it ok to use exp progesterone and/or estestorone?

When your hormone levels are out of balance, is it ok to use exp progesterone and/or estestorone?

Be very careful!: Since i don't know what you mean by "hormone levels are out of balance", it's impossible to answer your question.

Hi estrogen an lo progesterone   but cant take bio ident prog, cream  since the hormones r not level isnt this why anxiety an depressin ?

Probably not: The progesterone level only rises with ovulation and with pregnancy. So it should be very low, depending on when it is checked. Hormone levels can affect the mood, but that should also be a cyclic effect that varies throughout the cycle. The bio identical formulations may not offer any benefit - one way or the other. See your Ob/Gyn. ...Read more

High and low: Female cyclic hormones like Estradiol (estrogen) vary widely in a pattern during a cycle, so it's usually not helpful to call estrogen 'high' or 'low' without regard to when in the cycle it was done.
