30yo male with no prior pro-hormone use aside from a few days of oral DHEA (stopped a while back) and a couple of weeks of oral MLM Preg. Recently tested my progesterone to see what and if the pregnenolone was doing anything there. This is the result:
5.2 out of 0.2-1.4 ng/mL range
I do not have any labs for this prior to starting the preg at 150mg a day. I have had long standing issues that can be attributed to high progesterone, like some gyno, libido, and erection problems to name the most prevalent. I think that I have had the high progesterone for some time now, possibly due to exhausted adrenals and or estrogen. I am a skinny guy with total test in the 800's so I am not sure if estrogen is a problem here. Doctor's I talked to tell me that it is not possible because I am skinny and my test came back high upper range. Is that correct though?
I've also been taking adrenal cortex... I dropped the pregnenolone and don't plan on taking hornomes anymore. Just want to see if this goes down naturally or if better assited and any other possible causes.
Anything else to understand from this latest result? I did take a dose of preg before going in for the lab which probably skewed the results? Though the supplementation has not brought on any of the sides, they have been there. The supplementation is the reason I got the test, and the result makes me think about possibly trying to lower progesterone or probably more important, estrogen and look for a reduction in the issues mentioned in my second paragraph above...
