1 week supplementing with 5000 IU of Vitamin D had the following effect on my E2 levels:
E2 on trough, before supplementing: 46 (felt great, very mild symptoms, emo occasionally)
E2 on PEAK, after 1 week on 5k vitamin D: 31 (burning knees, feeling “off” emotionally, quicker to anger) I just felt like something was wrong, and I was like “there is no way its my e2 , that would be way too fast” Well. I was right. And I’m glad I listened to my body.
This is exactly 7 days after starting. My trough e2 reading SHOULD be higher, so this is concerning.
I actually requested the test a week earlier than I was going to do because I felt that familiar “burning” in my knees. I only get that “burning” when my e2 dips. I felt it, and immediately knew something was wrong. I was also just “not myself” if anyone knows that feeling. I wasn’t “happy” and motivated like normal. Still was motivated, but something was off.
This might not look like a big deal, but it is for me. If I had kept on this course, I definitely think I would have crashed my e2 within a month.
Going to adjust fire. Let my e2 rise back up, then start at 1000 iu maybe 3 times a week. My PCP is very understanding and willing to order labs whenever I need. We both made the following plan together, however she was willing to adjust however I need.
