Avatar n tn I am thrilled to say that I did find help from a midwife that informed me that strep b should not be causing burning, itching or discomfort. She tested me for low estrogen and that was the problem. She put me on estrace cream, clobetasol and a low dose (10mg) of fluoxetine( don't be alarmed, it is use to help with nerve pain) for 4 weeks. I am 33 years old and I am feeling better than ever! Low estrogen can be brought on by stress, bad diet, family history and so many other things.
Avatar n tn Either Brian Cushing is expecting a baby or his feminine side is showing, but he tested very high for Estrogen. Estrogen masks excessive Testesterone. Several years ago, a professional football player was found to have in his possession device called a "Whizzinator". When athletes are tested for urine, it's an observed test, and the Whizzinator included a fake male member plus a reservoir for someone else's urine to be pumped for the test. Egads.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am 28 yera old have problem that my AMH is very low(0.68) and FSH is 46.80 i want to know about tretment and i don't wanna go for IVF.is there any other tretment avail.
Avatar m tn As I become older, Im doing research and see that there are concerns for women who have one or both ovaries removed. I havent had one of these ovaries for 26 yrs...how has my estrogen production been affected? I will be seeing my doctor in June..what kind of questions or tests should I be looking for? Reading about dementia and Parkinson's scares me. Ive always wondered why I have no sex drive. Could this be a result too? I'm more concerned about the disease aspect. Many thanks.
Avatar f tn There is a new study that I just came across today - Excessive estrogen appears to be the cause of the problem. When very young mice were given estrogen, they all developed polycystic ovaries. It is thought that estrogen alters the function of the thymus gland, thus preventing the full development of the regulatory T-cells. Maybe that is why we have a increases sex drive- from all the estrogen -not the male hormones? here is the link to the whole article- http://www.ovarian-cysts-pcos.
Avatar f tn I am 50 years old and was diagnosed with estrogen positive breast cancer stage 1 with no lymph nodes affected. I am currently on tamoxifen. I am overwhelmed as to what to eat. I get even more confused each day. I have stopped eating red meat. What are the foods i should avoid, and can i eat soy for my stage? Also what about flax seeds?
Avatar f tn ) But why did my TSH go so low on a seemingly low dose of Levo? And my thyroid hormones are within the ranges? Could it be that starting on 88 mcg was too high and "shocked" my TSH to drop? Or could it be that I don't even need thyroid meds, that my thyroid has repaired itself? I don't have any hyper symptoms.
Avatar f tn I exercise regularly and for the last 3 months I have been running 3 to 5 times a week for 2 miles. My problem is that sometimes I would get very severe LOW abdominal pain when running. Sometimes is on the right side, sometimes is on the left side. It does not happen all the time, though. I worm up and increase my speed gradually. I am not sure if I should I see a doctor about that. If anyone has had anything similar, please share. Thank you!
1184481 tn?1264401890 Even doing just one IVF cycle, with give you an idea of how much ovarian reserve you have left. If you get enough eggs and even fail, it may work the next time. Also, remember, having low ovarian reserve does not always go hand in hand with having bad egg quality. I have read of many women on various forums, who have been given all the bad figures and stats by their doctors, but have gone on to have success. AMH and FSH can only give an idea, it is not 'gospel'.
1094771 tn?1330284476 We are continuing med (progesterone shots, estrogen patches, baby aspirin and prenatal vitamin) and testing again on Thursday. He says if we don't have a significant increase (around 500) then we will discontinue everything. I am so happy and excited, but also cautious b/c 168 is low for 3 weeks after the retrieval and I'm so worried that it will still end badly. The longer this is drawn out, the worse it gets to stand! Has anyone ever been in this situation???
Avatar m tn vaginal estrogen and systemic (into the blood stream) absorption we have alot of experience with use of vaginal (only) estrogen in women who are breast cancer survivors. If a woman has not had estrogen for years, she will have alot of irritation and thinness (called vaginal atrophy). In that condition, at first there is absorption through the vaginal wall. However, very quickly, the vaginal wall thickens and heals from the estrogen.
Avatar n tn Having a hysterectomy as such a young woman can create challenges, even if it corrected a problem. But now you have two concerns. The first is protecting your bones. The best way to follow the condition of your bones is with a bone density. They are typically done every 2 years. The radiation from a bone density is small, about the equivalent to the radiation associated with air travel. Estrogen, especially combined with calcium, is usually very effective in protecting bones.
Avatar f tn Since there are so many estrogen / HRT options and every woman reacts differently to the various forms and dosages, it is a travesty that they let you suffer all this time without letting you try something else since the zumenon obviously is/was not much help.
358971 tn?1330892575 The report says my 'ESTROGEN PRIMING IS LOW WHICH MEANS THAT YOUR TISSUES ARE EXPOSED TO LOW ESTROGEN IN THE FIRST HALF OF YOUR CYCLE AND ARE NOT OPTIMALLY RECEPTIVE TO THE PROGESTERONE IN THE 2ND HALF OF THE CYCLE." This doesn't make any sense to me. Why am i having symptoms of estrogen dominance if my estrogen levels are low in the 1st half of my cycle? And why am i having symptoms of pregnancy (progesterone related??) if i'm not maintaining normla progesterone levels when I should?
Avatar f tn I wonder if you have also had your tumors tested for estrogen...this is another way of being able to treat this disease. I have estrogen receptive low grade cancer and my doctors will be putting me on Tamoxifin after my surgery to see if this will help control a recurrence. I would suggest you ask your doctor about the estrogen and get a hold of your pathology report to confirm that your tumors are a borderline and not a low grade cancer... Good luck with things...
Avatar n tn I am a 40 year old woman with chronic tonsillitis, tonsilliths, and sinusitus since I was young. 2-3 times a year, I get throat infections (which have included strep A, Strep C, and HIB infections). I still have my tonsills. I have had recurrent muscle tension headaches and migraines for the past 20 yrs. I had a hysterectomy/ovary removal in January. Went for 9 months without HRT due to endometriosis. Recently started HRT.
Avatar n tn I know that when you are pregnant your MS symptoms usually subside because of having the hormones, but what about if a woman has a hysterectomy, taking everything out, leaving that woman with having to take HRT. If she doesn't get enough hormones, can that help bring out MS? Just a thought I had running thru my mind, along with everything else. I see the Neuro on Tuesday, and I thought about asking him this question but I feel silly. Anyways thanks, and please don't think I'm stupid.
Avatar f tn Also, If you are having vaginal dryness problems they have a bio-identical Estrogen ring that is installed by the woman herself, four times a year. This deals promptly with any discomfort a woman may be having with sex itself by directly affecting the local tissues, making them soft, moist and young feeling again. FINALLY, find a Dr who will test your blood levels of testosterone.
Avatar f tn Hi, True Fibroadenomas are benign breast tumors known to increase in size and tenderness in relation to the menstrual cycles due to hormonal changes.These benign tumors are not related to breast cancer in any way. In young women, there would be no need to remove the lump,unless it enlarges too much or causes pain.In some cases fibroadenomas could go away on their own within a few years. However,many doctors recommend removing these lumps,when a woman is 40 or older for several reasons...
Avatar f tn Hi, Fibroadenoma is a common lump that develops in women usually young and sometimes in older women too.These kind of lumps are non-malignant (benign or non-cancer) If a woman has a fibroadenoma, it is movable, painless, smooth, round, and hard. and it's easily seen with a mammogram.It is treated by excision, if it becomes too large or painful,or it can be left alone.But,some sort of tests is needed to give an accurate diagnosis that the lump is indeed a fibroadenoma.
Avatar n tn In addition, I have a large benign prostrate and fear the purpose of the Toprol will inhibit my levels of 2-hydroxy Estrogen. With a large prostrate at 71 years young, I fear the lack of the “good estrogen” might lead to something dangerous. Please advise and thank you for your wonderful products. Mr. C. Doctors Response: Dear Mr. C., You bring up an excellent question relative to maintaining your current level of control of the heart rhythm.
Avatar n tn In Feb I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and had a lumpectomy. Stage I .5mm low grade no lymphs involved, Estrogen and Prog. positive. Went through 7 weeks of radiation and in June started Tamoxifen. Started having lots of hotflashes but still normal periods. Then 1 month later I get a polyp removed from my uterus and D&C done (Found out about polyp before Breast Cancer but they put off the surgery till I was done with my treatments).
1344197 tn?1392822771 Serves as the primary ‘”reservoir” of estrogen, and dominant estrogen remaining AFTER menopause. It is produced primarily in the ovaries, body fat, and breast. E2, Estradiol; Serves as the primarily active estrogen BEFORE menopause and is LOST at menopause when follicles are gone. It is produced primarily in the ovaries with some made from testosterone in the brain, breast, and muscle. E3, Estriol; A weak estrogen made by the placenta during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn In the women's health initiative (WHI) study that associated breast cancer and hormones, in women who had their uterus removed and who received estrogen only (in that study the estrogen was Premarin), there was no increase in breast cancer. Only women who took PremPro (a combination of estrogen and progestin) had an increase. If you have a strong family history of breast cancer, talk with your doctor about being checked for the breast cancer gene (BrCa).
167426 tn?1254089835 Reiss, these women are typically very low in Estrogen and can suffer from some low level depression. They found that adding a little bit of estrogen (bio only and nothing orally) these women felt better. Then there is ME...yours truely. I will never ever be certain of this, but I would bet money on the fact that I have always had more estrogen in my system than I needed and I wonder at times if what I think is true...
Avatar n tn It may be due to lack of foreplay before intercourse, medical conditions such as vaginusmus and pelvic pain,vaginitis,anxiety regarding performance,low estrogen levels,inflammation and infections of vagina, and drugs such as narcotics, tranquilizers, nicotine, alcohol and sedatives. First of all, indulge in foreplay before intercourse and use some lubricants like such as KY jelly, or moisturizers, such as Replens or Senselle or vaginal estrogen creams.
