Question Low estradiol and Ovcon 35

I am 24 and was having hot flashes, no periods, etc. My doctor finally did hormone tests on me and found that I had so little estriol in my blood, it could not even be traced! But everything else was ok, so I am not going into early menopuase. She said it may be a result of being on the same low-dose birth control pill for 9 years, so she is switching me to Ovcon 35. I have heard of a lot of side effects, like depression, moodiness, and fatigue were the biggest concerns of mine. I have also heard alot about other bothersome side effects such as lots of bleeding, spotting, 2 periods a month, and weight gain. However, alot of these are also symptoms of too little estriol and I was hoping would be fixed by this new pill. So i was wondering if anyone has tried Ovcon 35 or any higher dose estriol bc due to low levels of estradiol and what happened?

Re: Low estriol and Ovcon 35

Yes I was on Ovcon 35 due to severe ovarian cysts problems and severe pain. Honestly I DID NOT LIKE IT AT ALL !!
I had ALOT of breakthrough Bleeding and it caused my BP to sky rocket. Before the Ovcon I was on Ortho Tri Cyclene for almost 8 years. After the Ovcon I was on Low Ogesteral (I think that was the name, then I was swithced to another pill (dont remember the name of that one then it was swithced again to Cyclessa. Then ended up with a hyst. So no more bc pills for me.
I would say try it and if you start with any side effects call your doc. It maybe trial and error for a while.
