History of other hormone issues?
History of OBC?
Was doc trying to shut down HPOA?
Can you get per-treatment labs for those hormone levels?
T and E will shutdown the HPOA and reduce pregnenolone and DHEA may follow.
Weight and thyroid are important.
Lyme is a slow recovery. Worse if treatment come later on and condition lingered. Adrenals may be affected.
If she is otherwise healthy, her HPTA may spring back. Stopping cold will not feel well. Better if she stops when her period starts, if she is still cycling. T helps when one has been taking prednisone etc as that can be very catabolic.
T might be causing acne or hair growth, need to watch carefully.
There is no such thing as the right hormone dose for women, very individualistic. If she is flat chested, her body is used to low levels of estrogen. If full breasted, her body is used to higher levels of estrogen. If thin and tall, low estrogen. If short and curvy, higher estrogen.
Some women convert DHEA-->T easily with obvious implication.
I would not use a SERM or hCG. Women's HPOA are used to functioning with a high load of E2.
