Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Well estrogen levels differ throughout the month - they are suppose to go up and down depending where in your menstrual cycle you are.

Dr Owen :

So IF you are concerned about your Fertility - then TWO tests are MUCH better at confirming this.'

Dr Owen :

hi

Dr Owen :

Can you see what I have written so far?

JACUSTOMER-buizfq8f- : Yes but it doesnt really explain why my estrogen is so low, i have had the two tests done, both are low. So id like to know the effects this has on my future fertility.
Dr Owen :

Well estrogen alone DOES not really say anything about fertility

Dr Owen :

You could just have a low estrogen level.

Dr Owen :

But what you NEED to do is get two test

JACUSTOMER-buizfq8f- : As well my periods are extremely light and last a maximum of 2 days now
Dr Owen :

1. FSH - follicle stimulating hormone - this should be less than 35

Dr Owen :

2. And AMH - AntiMullerian Hormone - this should be GREATER than 1.0

Dr Owen :

IF both of these tests are normal - then you still have good fertility

JACUSTOMER-buizfq8f- : Would it not indicate a problem with my ovarian reserve? Such a premature ovarian failure?
Dr Owen :

If they are not within the lab valuses - then YES this is leading towards POF - premature Ovarian Failure

Dr Owen :

but the Estrogen test is NOT the test you want

Dr Owen :

You want the FSH and AMH test

Dr Owen :

I hope that makes sense

JACUSTOMER-buizfq8f- : Yes thankyou
