NaBloPoMo Day 15: One Interesting Result

I got the printed copy of my test results yesterday and there was one interesting thing after all: My estrogen levels were low. I looked up the symptoms of low estrogen and they are some of the things that have been bugging me: Hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, and even weight gain.

About two or three years ago, a doctor switched me from Demulen, the Pill I had been using for years to Loestrin. I don't know why. But the other pill was a little higher in estrogen, so I am curious to see if switching back might make a difference, at least with the hot flashes and night sweats. I sent my doctor a message asking if we could try. I hope she says yes.

I'm still going to do what I can on my end, but if changing something small like that could help, it's worth a shot.
