Any Low Estrogen, Young Women Out There?
Fellow double X chromosome'd BPers,
I'm 30, following a bulletproof/paleo diet for over a year, managing my stress and prioritizing my sleep. A few months back, I had my hormone levels tested; everything came back in the normal range with the exception an estradiol reading of 50 pg/mL. My non-integrative doc scribbled a prescription for birth control and sent me on my way. I can't concede to using birth control to increase my estrogen. I'm taking maca everyday, but wanted to throw this post into the ladies BP forum to see if anyone else was in the same boat.
Not looking to conceive children, but anytime hormone levels are out of range, it's a cause for concern and careful monitoring. Would love to hear from you if you're out there!
