Ok, so now they called me to tell me that the lab made a mistake, my actual numbers are:
Estradiol- 73.6
Progesterone- 133

How are those numbers? The Estradiol seems low, and the progesterone seems high, no? I am taking 2mg estrace in the morning and 2 mg estrace at night. Maybe itīs not enough. Thanks for any input.

Sounds ok. We usually add back estrogen if the level is <200 but not all clinics do this. Prog is fine to be high.

Good luck
