Treatment for thickened endometrial lining. If adjust HRT to increase progesterone, how likely are side effects hair loss, weight gain & depression?

Progesterone use: Progesterone is required to oppose the estrogen in Estrogen Replacement Therapy(ERT). the number one problem when it is not used by Rx is the one you already have had-thickening of the endometrium which can lead to endometrial cancer. Often it is used for just a few days of the HRT regimen and the side effects you mentioned are often minimal to non-existent in those circumstances. ...Read more

I did my progesterone test at day 4 aftet et in my IVF treatment. They were just 1.7. Is it fine or something to worry about. Please tell me. ?

I did my progesterone test at day 4 aftet et in my IVF treatment. They were just 1.7. Is it fine or something to worry about. Please tell me. ?

IVF Progesterone: Progesterone (p4) levels after ivf are often confusing. We often use vaginal Progesterone which goes directly into the uterus and then does not show up in the blood stream. Intramuscular p4 gives great blood levels but the injections hurt. We usually do not measure p4 levels when we use vaginal p4 because the numbers do not help and only cause worry - particularly if you read the internet :). ...Read more

Ttc-progesterone low. Dr referring me to a specialist.  What are treatment for this? Is this uncommon? 27 yrs old with a 7 and 5 year old.

When?: Depends on when during cycle it is measured. Prior to ovulation levels are low, typically less than 1 to 2 ng/ml. Soon after ovulation levels will be greater than 2 ng/ml and up to 25, 30 or more. In the second half of the cycle (luteal phase) Progesterone is secreted in pulses and levels vary widely; i therefore think the idea of 'normal' doesn't help much. ...Read more

What causes a female to have low e2 and progesterone? What is the treatment testosterone normal. E2 less than 21 progesterone .6  on day 2 of cycle sm

Normal: The levels of estrogen and Progesterone you wrote are very normal for a cycle day 2. Your Estradiol will slowly rise to about 150-250pg around the time of ovulation and your Progesterone doesn't increase until after you ovulate. If your cycles are regular, then those numbers are ok. ...Read more
