Estrogen Levels

When going through menopause is Estrogen lower or higher?

Before my hyst. I had a very high Estrogen level of 2600 and the pathology report said possible early menopause... I'm 43.

I thought if you were going through menopause Estrogen production slowed down ????? I'm having similar symptoms to what I had when my Estrogen was high and everyone says maybe I'm starting to go through menopause.

Estrogen Levels

Estrogen drops, a lot. That's why women often choose to use a patch to boost it, so they don't get the hot flashes and sweats etc. Sometimes people in their early 40's do go through menopause. If you are getting hot or cold spells or night sweats or actual hot flashes, you could be starting. If you are, and you choose to eventually start hormone replacement, it's usually easier for a doctor to start testing you and your hormones before you lose them all. It's possible that since you are so used to high Estrogen, that it is still a real big shock to your system to get along on normal hormones and might seem like menopause, but it might not be. If you are quite sure you do not want to start hormones or aren't able to for certain health reasons, hang in there, Sis, there will be plenty of support either way. There are as many pros as cons in the new research on hormones if they are bioidentical, so it's more based on how severely different you feel and what you want. Best, Asta

Estrogen Levels

Carmen,
It depends on what type of test was performed. If was a FSH test,the higher the number, the more likely it is that your estrogen levels are depleting and you're entering menopause. FSH is a hormone produced by the adrenals in response to low levels of estrogen. FSH's job is to stimulate the ovaries to make more estrogen. If the ovaries don't listen and do their job, then you crank out more FSH. So menopausal women can have very high FSH levels.
