How do I know if I have progesterone or estrogen dominance? I am 49 years old, had a partial hysterectomy (still have my ovaries), and have no idea of when my ovulation is taking place, due to the lack of menstruation. a DOCTOR said that I have "progesterone dominance" because I said I am sexually attracted to handsome men (not to my husband though), but still prescribed me the EMERITA PROGEST CREAM. Here are my lab results Hormonal profile Date: 27/feb/10 09:27 FSH 60.86 mUI/mL folicular phase 2 to 10 Ovulatory Phase 12 to 30 Luteal phase 2 to 10 Post-menopause 40 a 150 LH 28.14 mUI/mL folicular phase 2 to 25 Ovulatory phase 22 to 56 Luteal phase 3 to 16 Post-menopause 15 to 100 PROLACTINE 6.63 ng/mL Luteal phase 3 to 40 Fase folicular 3 to 25 Post-menopause 3 to 25 PROGESTERONE 3.10 ng/mL folicular phase 0.2 to 1 Luteal phase 2.5 to 25 Ovulatory phase 2.5 to 30 Post-menopause 0.2 to 2 ESTRADIOL 39.41 pg/mL folicular phase 20 to 150 Luteal phase 50 to 300 Ovulatory phase 100 to 450 Post-menopause 5 to 30 TESTOSTERONE total 0.34 ng/mL Adults 0.2 to 0.7 Post-menopause 0.1 to 0.4 Method: Quimioluminiscence

Hi, During the monthly cycle, the production of progesterone in the body by the ovaries (after ovulation) is about 15-30 mg a day. Since progesterone production is triggered by ovulation, it is produced from around day 12 to day 26 for a 28-day cycle (day 1 is the first day of menstrual period). Besides Its level increases to 2-3 folds in early pregnancy. However in menopause both estrogen and progesterone level decreases. Please consult your doctor for a better insight of the situation. I hope it helps.
