Re: Do I have Low Estrogen?

Naomih,
Is your mother the only one in your family that has had ovarian cancer?
My mother-in-law died last year with it. She did cemo for 6 years. Sure do miss her. Since your mother had ovarian cancer and you are having problems you may want to ask the Dr to do a CA 125 lab test. This is a blood test that will measure if you have any cancer in your system. Don't mean to scare you, but if your mom had it you should keep an eye on it. I have begged my sister-in-law to have her ovaries taken out because her mom, grandmother and aunt all died w/ ovarian cancer. She had the CA 125 test and it was normal. She said she will make this test part of her yearly exam. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Ang
