When to Hormone Test and Topical vs Oral Progesterone Comparison Video 6 of 6
Eckhart, MD talks about indications for hormone testing. Most of the time hormone testing
is not helpful clinically. The hormone test is normal for the woman of that age group. For most women most of the time after the
age of 35 the progesterone level is zero or near zero. This is because they are under going
anovulatory cycles. They do not ovulate during a normal cycle most of the time after the age of 35. A follicle is produced, but no egg pops out, and no corpus luteum is produced. If there is no corpus luteum, then there is no progesterone produced by the woman.
For most if not all women, it is NOT the endogenous hormones that are causing problems. It is
the xenoestrogens or environmental estrogens that are causing problems. However, the hormone test
does not measure xenoestrogens. Thus, the hormone test is useless. The hormone test is NOT
measuring the problem.
