Red face - what are your LOW ESTROGEN symptoms? what are your LOW ESTROGEN symptoms?

I'm trying to figure out if I have low estrogen or an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone.
Here are my symptoms:
itchy skin,
worsening allergies, itchy chest, tight feeling at times
depressed mood
sleep erratic
no energy
less fullness to my breasts/ yet they are slightly sore on the sides.
tearful
I'm tired but have trouble falling asleep. and staying asleep.
To me, these are symptoms of low estrogen . does anyone else agree?
I can't seem to keep it in my system. I did call my gyn but I cannot get an appt for 10 days yet.. Its driving me crazy.
Maybe I am low in both E and P.

Re: what are your LOW ESTROGEN symptoms?

It's only recently I even began to suspect that I was starting to go through menopause...your symptoms are exactly like mine! I just had my yearly pap but at the time I didn't put it together so hadn't mentioned it to the doctor. Guess I need to make another appointment... Good luck to you!

Re: what are your LOW ESTROGEN symptoms?

I had hot flashes, trouble staying asleep, brain fog, and bad attitude (nothing was right). That doesn't match up with your list so I'm not much help as to est vs progest, but I'm interested in what your GYN thinks. I find it hard to say what's hormonal and what's a coincidence. I never thought my sleep issue was hormonal until it went away. I hope your GYN has some goon answers, let us know what he says.

Ann,
You'll find a list of symptoms here http://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/article_97238.htm

You could print out the list, make a check mark next to the symptoms you're having and take it in to discuss with your doctor.

Re: what are your LOW ESTROGEN symptoms?

I am having similar symptoms, I do not know if phytoestrogens would benefit me. I happen to have the cream. They would compete for the estrogen receptors so I am not sure if that would help.

Wow, I had a mix of all the symptoms listed. Guess I will have to have my MD try to figure it out!

Re: what are your LOW ESTROGEN symptoms?

I know that I have been able to buy cream with progesterone in it over the counter. I don't know if one can by estrogen over the counter that is not a phytoestrogen or does that need to be prescribed by a doctor. Like for instance Estriol Cream.

Re: what are your LOW ESTROGEN symptoms?

You can buy estradiol over the counter at health food stores or on Amazon. About 13-25 dollars a bottle. It will last you over a month depending on how much is needed. One pump of life-flo is equal to .25 mgs of estradiol. It seems to help me. I also use life-flo progesterone cream 1 to 2 pumps a day. 20-40 mgs total. Pro calms me down, whereas estradiol ramps me up. I'm also on a compounded testosterone cream 3% daily for libido. It helps. Google Life-flo. Hope it helps.
