Estrogen dominance - How to Supplement PROGESTERONE
Use PROGESTERONE supplementation cautiously
PROGESTERONE "therapy" has 3 steps. FIRST, use other tactics to NATURALLY reduce estrogen levels in the body and boost PROGESTERONE via diet and lifestyle changes before considering supplementation (Step 3):
Used in the long-term, it is important to use a delivery route that avoids hormonal build-up in the fat cells - this problem is now recognized as a consequence of long-term transdermal application and is discussed in:
An annual urine test (most accurate) or saliva test (next best alternative) to monitor PROGESTERONE levels is advisable. The saliva value should be below 300 (some have reported numbers over 10,000, which may take up to two years to return to normal, since PROGESTERONE is stored in the fat and releases very slowly). If PROGESTERONE level is not below 300, one should not resume PROGESTERONE until it is.
To understand why blood tests for hormones are useless:
PROGESTERONE supplementation may INITIALLY have an estrogenic effect. PROGESTERONE reactivates “sleepy” estrogen receptors. In premenopausal women, a deficiency of PROGESTERONE causes a "turning-down" of estrogen receptor sensitivity, and when women begin using PROGESTERONE , those Estrogen receptors are reactivated. This causes them to become overly sensitive, with ensuing estrogen dominance effects - e.g. water retention, headaches and swollen breasts. There can also be a temporary buildup of the endometrium, causing spotting and irregular bleeding. Most of these symptoms should disappear within a couple of cycles.
