Low Estrogen with Ovarian Cysts?

Postby crombwiella83 » Sat Aug 06, 2011 11:05 am

Hi everyone!

In July 2010 I missed three straight periods and after visting a gynocologist, I learned that I had a low estrogen count which resulted in multiple (I never learned the exact number) of cysts confined to my left ovary. I was placed on Loestrin 24 Fe to regulate my estrogen and to resolve the cysts. It's all been going well but lately I've been feelng moderate pressure in my pelvic region as well as gastro intestinal issues, cramping, and lethargy + decreased appetite. I'm not quite sure what to make of it. I'm not due to see my doctor until January but I don't know if any of these symptoms are big enough to go see her earlier. Should this be alarming to me? or should I just wait all of it out. I'm a bit concerned because I have a history of ovarian cancer in my family and I've read that having low estrogen can increase someone's chances to have ovarian cancer.

Any suggestions?

I don't think it's cause for HUGE concern, but all the same I'd move up the appointment to be prudent, given the family history.

Please continue with the medication.
I suggest you take fresh ginger juice (boil ginger in water and reduce it) then drink the water twice a day.
You may also soak fenugreek seeds in water overnight and drink the water first thing on the morning and chew the seeds. This will surely give you relief from heaviness and spasms.

You may try light yoga exercises. Go for a walk.
Eat fresh vegetables and fruits. Avoid sugary and soda based drinks and meat.

You need to see a doctor soon.
