So I am at a loss for words with doctors. Anyhow, I keep coming across this forum as I search for answers on my own, so I figured I would join and see if anyone can help me out. I have had a slight case of gyno for as long as I can remember. The breast on one side has been tender off and on for the last 5 years or so, but recently has become more consistent. I had my test and estrogen blood work done to have the following:
total test - 377
my E2 was normal at 22
but my total estrogen was 218
One doctor wanted to put me on depo test right away, another wanted to put me on an estrogen blocker. my concern is that
- neither of them can tell me what is causing my total estrogen to be so high
- if i us an estrogen blocker, wouldn’t that take my E2 to an abnormal low level and cause other issues?
Are there natural supplements to take that are safer and proven to work? I recently lost over 30 lbs (dieting pretty hard) 190 to 160 lbs in about 4-6 months and have also had alot of stress/anxiety for the last 4 months also with my marital life. Could those things have thrown my numbers off? I have zero other symptoms besides a slight gyno problem. I should also add, that I took ergopharm 1-ad about 12 years ago and did have any side effects except the gyno a fews years later.
