Estrogen levels??

HI,
I just had my estrogen levels checked, via a blood test. The level came back at 200. I have no idea what that means. Does anyone know? (I presently use one pump of Estrogel per day.)
Thanks.

Estrogen levels??

Anne,
Did you get a copy of your results? Different labs can have different values, so it's best to get a copy of the results so you can see where you fall within their reference ranges. Also, testing should just be a tool to use, to go hand in hand with the symptoms you are experiencing. We all will not feel the same at a given level and test ranges are usually very broad. It is also a good idea to discuss the results with your doctor.

Estrogen levels??

Did your healthcare provider not go over the results with you? I use to have the bloodwork done but now I have my estrogen levels checked with a saliva test. Since I've started going that route, I have been able to balance my vivelle patch much better. I had about 10X the amount of estrogen in my body that I should have but when I asked my male OBGYN about it, he said that I was probably just depressed. Needless to say, I changed doctors and am now going to a wonderful nurse practioner at at Women's Health Care Center. She adjusted my patch prescriptions (after the saliva test) and 6 months later my estrogen was in the normal ranges.

You might check into a saliva test.

HTH
