    progesterone test, whats does this actually mean?

    Your Progesterone is low. Progesterone may help to inhibit the conversion of androgens to estrogens as well as serve as pre-cursor to cortisol

    Not sure what this means, anyone????

    Progesterone is a female hormone like the esterogen. Androgens are male hormones (i.e testosterone ) and can convert into esterogens and cause gyno (bitch tits). Cortisol is a catabolic hormone (called the stress hormone).

    Does some of this make sense to you?

    yeah I know all that and what the hormones are but what does it mean: Progesterone may "help to inhibit" the "conversion of androgens to estrogens"

    and whats a "pre-cursor to cortisol"

    thanks

    Inhibit = prevent. pre-cursor means it changes to that once its in your body meaning not as effective as straight up cortisol.
