Brief Answer:
Could you attach the estrogen report?

Detailed Answer:
Good day.
Noted your concern. Primarily sounds like menopausal symptoms. However we need to know the estrogen and FSH levels to confirm it. You did the estrogen levels, but not the units. If possible please attach the report. I would strongly recommend to get a thyroid function test, CBC and an EGG as well.

hi

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for the reply. That would be very helpful. It is recommended to do a FSH level along with Estrogen levels. Make sure you do them in the morning between 7 to 9 am on empty stomach
