I had a blood test done on progesterone(was 10) and estradiol (was 74) What does this mean-what is the norm at 35?

September 26th, 2009 by admin

I’ve started having sleepless night, hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, anixety, crying, memory lost. That is why I had the test done to see if I have started early stages of menopause.


Estradiol (E2) is produced in women mainly in the ovary. In men, the testes and adrenal glands are the principal source of estradiol. In women, normal levels of estradiol provide for proper ovulation, conception, and pregnancy, in addition to promoting healthy bone structure and regulating cholesterol levels. Normal Result Limits: This test result has no single level of normal results.

Your lab report should include a range of numbers that identifies what is expected for you based on your age, sex, and the method used in that laboratory. Since progesterone levels vary predictably throughout the menstrual cycle, multiple (serial) measurements can be used to help recognize and manage some causes of infertility. Progesterone can be measured to determine whether or not a woman has ovulated, to determine when ovulation occurred, and to monitor the success of induced ovulation.

Normal Result Limits: This test result has no single level of normal results. Your lab report should include a range of numbers that identifies what is expected for you based on your age, sex, and the method used in that laboratory. Without knowing why you are having these tests done its hard to really give you a correct answer to your question.

Is there a way to increase my Progesterone and Estradiol levels?

September 24th, 2009 by admin

Hello, I’d like to know if there is any supplement or natural way to increase my progesterone and estradiol level? Currently I am trying to conceive. Thanks for your information.


Over the counter there are Progestrone cremes. But other than that you have to have a prescription for the Progestrone Suppositories. And you have to have had an 18 panel blood test done to know for sure that your progestrone level is too low for you to concieve properly. I had blood test done and found out I have low progestrone, I have a blood clot disorder and with an ultrasound I found out that I have a tilted uterus and cyst on my ovaries. NOW…with all that being said….I have to take Progestrone suppositories once a day starting on day 14 of my cycle, then when I get pregnant I will go to 2x a day. BUT I also have to take a folic acid pill, pre-natal vitamins and a baby asprin once a day. And as soon as I get a positive result I will also have to give myself 2 Hemprin injections twice a day. But you don’t want to start taking Progestrone creme unless your doctor has told you that you have low Progestrone. GOOD LUCK if you want to talk more feel free to contact me Cugini2006@yahoo.com
