I hope some here can provide a more in-depth explanation than my endo did for why my progesterone level tested so high. I don’t smoke, drink or do drugs; I’m in very good health. But this month was the first time that I had asked to have progesterone tested. The testes produce most of the progesterone in cis men. But I’m 10 years post-op and have been on estradiol valerate injections twice monthly long before and ever since. So I was shocked when the blood levels showed it at 13 ng.

So, I'm now on a blood thinner for 3 months and I think I'll be talking to my end
