Response to Estrogen dosage?


Under Dr. Ch.eck, I was taking one estrace daily in the luteal phase, then switching to estinyl (synthetic form) once I got a negative beta test. I took the estinyl until about day 6. It kept my fsh low, gave me lots more antral follicles, and gave me regular cycles. It also makes me look better, i.e. fewer menopausal symptoms, since my natural estrogen is VERY low.

Now I have modified this a bit. I take 2 estraces every day in the luteal phase and stop them on day 1 of my period. This lets my natural fsh surge a bit and I get a "boost" and usually 2 instead of 1 follicle maturing each month. I can really feel the estrogen drop after day 1, but then it goes back up with the estrogen produced by my follicles. I still ovulate around day 14 or so.

By the way, I ALWAYS take progesterone supplementation in the luteal phase as well. I believe that it is dangerous to take just estrogen supplements as it can lead to uterine problems (hyperplasia).
