In brief: Usually not
If you are having normal menstrual cycles, you should not need Estradiol since you make enough of your own.
Progeterone is a totally different hormone but the answer is the same.

In brief: No and no
At 33, withe regular periods, you should have enough estrogen from your ovaries.
Estrdiol is a naturally occurring estrogen, that if taken alone could lead to cancer of the uterus. Progesterone is a different hormone. I would not recommend taking any extra hormones without discussing it with your dr.
