From researching, it seems tamoxifen can cause elevated progesterone response. Going to drop the nolva, and just taper off the clomid. Anyone else have any thoughts?
I just googled progesterone and after scanning 1k words on women found this
Progesterone is known as a female hormone, but males need progesterone to produce*testosterone. The adrenal glands and testes in males produce progesterone.
Progesterone levels in males are similar to those of females in the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, when the egg follicle on an ovary is preparing to release an egg.
Symptoms of*low progesterone in males*include:
Low progesterone levels in men can lead to hair loss.
Gynecomastia, which is breast development in males
Bone lossMuscle loss
Men with low progesterone levels have a higher risk of developing:
Prostatism, an obstruction of the bladder neck, typically associated with an enlarged prostate gland
As males age, testosterone begins to decline, estrogen levels rise, and progesterone levels fall dramatically."""
Sorry if the link isn't allowed. Basically scroll to the way bottom it's the closing of the article.
The hormonal system is insanely interconnected and complex. It can be hard to determine if the symptom is high levels or low levels because the effects we feel are so close sometimes.
