Hormone testing

Hi there, has anyone had their estrogen levels tested? I've had excision over the summer which seems to be mainly successful but I'm still getting terrible bloating, awful fatigue, breast pain and occasional twinges after exercise in the areas operated on. I'm not on birth control (I had the Mirena for two months and came off it three months ago).

I've asked my doctor to check my estrogen levels to see if they are too high. Whilst he's agreed, he's not keen and doesn't see the point apart from to shut me up.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

hey there,

In my opinion it wouldn't hurt to take some natural supplements to help balance your hormones. Even if it has not been confirmed that you have some issues, taking some vitamins wouldn't cause any adverse effects
