I got so caught up in the biopsy etc., that I never posted about the test results I got back the day before. DHEA was fine so I'll stay on 5 mg. Testosterone was normal. Cortisol was a little high. That indicates stress so I guess I should stop watching the news! Progesterone was low normal and estradiol was really still low. So she doubled my prescription to .250 Triest with 75 mg. progesterone. She said the estradiol has to be higher if I want my sex drive back. It's not just the testosterone that you need. Why do some women not have this problem? I talked to someone over the weekend that is not on hormones and her sex drive is fine. My doctor intimated that really is not the norm though.
The prescription came Wed. so I started on the new dose, but by Sat. I was not feeling too well. Then on Sunday I was exhausted, had a "hot head", and was close to tears all day. So I called the office Monday and she said it was probably increased too much too quickly and to cut back a little for a week.
So that's what I've been doing for two days but I'm still so tired I may cut back to the old dose for a week and then start going up again. I guess when you haven't had your hormones for four years it takes your body a while to adjust.
I'm supposed to retest again in six weeks.
