    Hey all - Im a 30 yo female seeking some hormone level advice! I recently got back my 1 day saliva test ordered by my functional doc and he didnt help me interpret results so Im looking for some help.
    I collected it on day 21 of cycle (Im usually 28 days, pretty regular BUT usually heavy, with clots, and quite long in duration. I have VERY low ferritin of 18 so I need to get this in order too)

    Analyte Result Unit

    Estradiol (E2) 2.3 pg/mL

    Progesterone (Pg) 704 pg/mL

    Pg/E2 Ratio 306

    Testosterone 20 pg/mL

    DHEA*

    218 pg/mL


    cortisol am 8.9 nmol/L

    cortisol noon 2.0 nmol/L

    cotrisol evening 1.0 nmol/L

    cortisol night 0.66 nmol/


    Can anyone help with this? I see a lot of people use progest-e but doc said my progesterone levels are actually not 'low'? I use Estroban, lapodin (to lower cortisol although Im wondering if my cortisol is actually fine?), and I have pansterone from Haidut . I have on going bladder sensitivities and issues too which some have mentioned progesterone cream COULD help with. The last thing I want to do is supplement progesterone and increase it too much as I hear it increases breast cancer risk which is in my family and also dont want to mess with my hormones unnecessarily.

    Thanks in advance for the help!
