    Whoops Sorry misread the bit about dairy increasing estrogen. Its just the dairy which has been produced by a hormone treated animal which increases estrogen and we already know that. Thats why organic dairy and chicken is best.

    Wow, I didn't know that. Thank you for the information. I guess I should be getting rid of all my lavender products.

    Do you know the actual levels of testosterone and estrogen that are considered high or low? I had my levels tested and they look like they are on the low side for Testosterone but high for estrogen.

    OK I have read some new info since last I read this post and I feel like I should reply even though it's old.

    ALL dairy, organic or non-organic, has hormones in it. This is because the cows are producing milk and they make hormones just like we do when we're producing milk. Lactating cows secrete estrogen into their milk. This is true whether they're treated with additional hormones or not.

    Farmers want cows to produce MORE milk than they normally do and for a longer period, so some inject them with cow growth hormone to up their milk production and keep them producing milk for longer. This is IDENTICAL to regular cow growth hormone and the FDA cannot even tell the two apart - ALL milk contains this growth hormone, it's just that some is synthetic and the rest of it is produced naturally by the cow.

    So whenever you hear that you MUST drink organic milk because it has no hormones in it, that's NOT true. All milk has hormones in it and they are chemically identical.

    It is different for every person depending on many factors like genetics and body type. Research indicates that it may be a change in your own personal hormones that sway and not your numbers compared to any other person. If you have the highest testosterone and/or estrogen on earth and your numbers drop by 5% right before you conceive, you may have a better chance at conceiving a girl than the person with the lowest on earth whose numbers rise by 5% right before they conceive.

How much should I drink a day?

    So increasing progesterone decreases estrogen? I didn't know that. Besides Vitex, what else can I take to increase progesterone? I am going to stop nursing in a month or so. Could I use progesterone cream? And when do I use it in my cycle if so?

    If I am not trying to conceive for awhile should I still only take Vitex between period and O?
    Peppermint tea was studied and it really did seem to help in women with PCOS. Now I am not aware of any studies done on women without PCOS and it may be that it does nothing.

    I don't know that increasing progesterone increases estrogen (can't find where I said that, I"m sorry ). It's probably the ratio of one to the other that matters.

    Some people have tried the prog creams but they make me nervous because if you start using them, you must use them throughout your entire first tri and never skip a day because your body gets "used" to that level of progesterone and if you stop it too soon (or even just miss a day) you risk a miscarriage.

    I think we need an essay on raising progesterone naturally!
