I found out my estrogen was low due to my method of birthcontrol. I am on the nuva ring which is low hormone, but I need higher levels of estrogen. I was having all sorts of problems with vaginal stuff and hair and skin and so forth. And also I was gaining weight and I didn't understand why.
So I have been taking oral estrogen for about a month now and I am starting to see some changes. I have a little more pep every now and then.
We thought it was thyroid at first- I had all the symptoms, but it ended up being the estrogen.
