Discussions that mention low-ogestrel

Women's Health board


my dr. suggested i test my estrogen levels since i am constantly fatigued and she mentioned that many ppl on the BCP i am on had very low levels.

I am 20 yrs old and have been on a low estrogen BCP for more than a year. (low-ogestrel)

Anyways, i got the test done about 4 days ago and i should be getting my period tomorrow (its usually reliable!)

my estradiol levels were less than 10 pg/ml, if i am not mistaken (which i very well may be), i am at the "midcycle phase" and according to this lab sheet, my levels should be at 120-375!!!!!!

what should i make of this?? Or is this just normal since i am on a low estrogen pill??

Thanks!
