Can the body be ok with low estrogen? I'm at 6 on my estrogen test and 3 on fsh and lh 3.2 I feel my levels are not adding up to where I'm supposed to be in menopause. I'm 14 month without a period. So I'm post menopausal. Can any one relate?
Hi @Catina no your body isn't OK with low oestrogen. It can make you feel really unwell. Mine was very low and I became very moody and tearful.
You need to ask your GP for oestrogel. Its a gel that you put on your arms or thighs and within days you will notice the difference. X
Julie 20....My doctor prescribed progesterone and estrogen. But I won't take it cause I'm afraid of stroke and heart attack. I seem to be sort of getting used to it. Eventually, I willhave to do it without hrt because it's only short term . So it's either now while I'm younger and able or wait till I'm in my 60s or 70s to go through estrogen withdrawal it's very challenging this decision. ♥️
Hi @Catina, hope you're staying safe. x
Just wanted to let you know that we have a lovely menopause nurse @DianePorterfield-Bourne on here, you can ask her if you have any question (for free of course). ☺️ She also prescribes HRT at her own clinic so will be able to advice on the subject.
Best, Blanka x
