I have a question not strictly related to thyroid hormone, but I hope it's ok to post it here anyway as all hormones interact.
I have been reading a lot about estrogen dominance, which seems common after age 35 as progesterone production will decrease as much as 75%, but estrogen production only about 35%.
The hormone doctor I am seeing put me on both estrogen (cream) and progesterone four years ago, when I was 41. Estrogen is to be taken from day 5-25 of cycle, and progesterone from day 15-25.
I cannot help but wonder...if estrogen production decreases much less than progesterone production after 35, should you really take estrogen at all?!
Other meds I take: NDT, Medrol.
