Test Results

My test results just arrived in the mail. I was a little apprehensive about opening them but I was brave, and proceeded.  Glucose-fine, Prolactin -fine, DHEA – fine, Estradiol – 36, not sure if that’s fine or not but it was not commented on by the doctor, Testosterone – fine, TSH – fine, Progesterone – almost NON-EXISTENT!  Do you know what that means?

Symptoms of low progesterone are:

Mood swings
Appetite changes
Weight changes
Lack of concentration
Frequent menstruation
Irregular menstruation
PCOS – which is the next thing she was going to check me for
Vaginal dryness
Painful intercourse

So, there you go! I am not crazy!  I am actually very happy not to have ALL of those symptoms but the ones I have are more than enough. My hormone imbalance has caused a lot of my issues.  I knew it!  So, do I really need to be on an anti-depressant if I get treated for the low hormone level?

At the end of my test results, my doctor wrote that she recommends Prometrium or Essential Oils.  Has anyone had any experience with these?  Comment on this post and please let me know. 🙂
