Hormonal testing

My healing has been hindered by the massive bleeding I am still experiencing after taking a supplement called glutathione. Then issues with birth control pills used to stop bleeding which didn't work. I was wondering if someone has knowledge on hormones can tell me what my test results mean. I'm just exhausted. I am confused by recent blood tests. The ratio of estradiol to progesterone is 227 pmol/L estradiol to <0.5 nmol/L progesterone. Does this mean i am estrogen dominant? but there are ranges on the test like mid-cycle and Luteal phases where estrogen levels over 1000 pmol/L are deemed normal. Or am I actually too low in estrogen too since it is only at 227. Can someone help me as I have no knowledge on this.

@YippeeKi YOW !! , if her post gets too low in the new post queue, you can just type 'Bump' and that will keep it more visible. Maybe check right before you log out today. Then again when we come back on after the maintenance . I might not remember.

@jesse's mom @YippeeKi YOW !! Wow thanks for being so helpful. Sorry for the delay but my notifications never come in! I am still in the cycle of bleed a RIDICULOUS amount, run to acupuncture to stop bleeding, wash rinse and repeat. My doc told me my hemoglobin and ferritin are near the "need a blood transfusion" level but i've been replenishing like crazy with heme iron Proferrin and liver. It worked somewhat and my bleeding is here again this week. I will go to hospital if i feel dizzy. My cycle has improved where it is no longer big clots but little mini ones, so that means my uterine lining is shedding differently but I am still bleeding massive amounts and still don't know if it will stop bleeding on its own this month. I doubt it. I will give it couple more days and then off to acupuncture to stop it again.

I tried DIM and CDG in minute amounts and omg they make my hot flashes worse. and I actually think it caused my period to show up 15 days early this time. so I've only had 15 days free of no bleeding since my last acupuncture session. Not enough days to replenish much blood reserve. I learnt my lesson not to touch DIM/CDG again. I think my theory is that although the ratio of estradiol to progesterone is high..I am still considered low in hormones which is why DIM/CDG put me in a pseudo-menopausal state. That stuff is potent and shouldnt be messed around with. Now my only mission is to somehow raise Progesterone without altering the estrogen much. I had Vitex in mind. Can anyone shed some light?
