Estrogen and Progesterone

My doctor prescribed me .5 mg estradiol to help with my low estrogen.  We're hoping this will help me use my progesterone better, as they say sometimes this happens.  I'm supposed to take it on the third day after ovulation through the twelfth day after ovulation (peak +3 through peak +12). 

Also, starting this cycle, I'm adding 200 mg Prometrium (prescription natural progesterone) on those same days in my cycle, which is in addition to the 100 mg natural progesterone IM shots I take on P+ 4, 7, 10. 

Hopefully, this new regimen will help my reproductive hormones, especially progesterone, which will help my cortisol levels, which will help my adrenals.
