Question about libido and estrogen
I just saw my endo about my nonexistent libido. He ran some tests and said that my estrogen was a little low. I just got the results and it doesn't seem like my estrogen is low. It was taken on day 18 of my cycle and it was 104 with Follicular 11-212
Mid Cycle 18-480
Day 18 is in the luteal phase right? He also ran total testosterone which was
32 (20-76). He didn't run a progesterone which I thought was curious. I am taking .5 mg estradiol and have to say I am not feeling so great even 3 days into it. I certainly don't want to take it if I don't need it, but if it will eventually help...
I am a hypothyroid patient and thought my symptoms which also include very dry skin and fatigue were due to not being optimized. He is the second endo that considers my low TSH a reason not to prescribe more medication even though my thyroid hormone levels are on the low side.
