| | Low estrogen in 20s, caused by BC pills
I'm 27 years old and have been diagnosed by my gyno as having low estrogen. She made the diagnosis visually, saying I have the vagina of an "80 year old," meaning I have vaginal atrophy. She said it was caused by my birth control pills (which I have taken since I was 13 for heavy periods). But I don't understand how birth control pills can CAUSE low estrogen.
Is there anyone out there who has experienced this?
