Well, this is an interesting turn of events, ladies. It's been a crazy estradiol-ride for me since I started HRT - all my hormone levels have tested consistently on point except for THE most important (IMO) one: estrogen. It's either too high (110) or not high enough (30-35). Trutt is happiest with it at 75. At one point it was a tad over 50, and he was okay with that, but we thought we'd try to push it up closer to 75. That's when it went to 110 and my Auntie visited again for a month.
Well, on my most recent dose (as of circa 1.5 weeks ago), I started having some "tenderness," if you catch my drift. Trutt wanted me to tell him the minute I did, so I emailed him. He told me to stop my estradiol cream altogether, wait for the symptom to resolve (about two days), and then begin again on a decreased dose.
Third day today and it still hasn't resolved. So we emailed back and forth, and he's not concerned...but get this. His most recent email said that I probably still have circulating estrogen, because, AND GET THIS: my FSH levels are still low and have always been low, so he said I'm not really in menopause yet.
Sisters. I'll be 57 in January.
What the serious hell??? lmao
I'm just a oily slick in a windup world with a nervous tick.
