Low estrogen 6wks after miscarriage.  Cannot self-start menses. What can I do?.

May need meds: Sometimes a woman has low estrogen levels, which means the lining of the uterus won't grow as much (estrogen grows the lining of the uterus) and she is less likely to ovulate. Several hormone problems can cause this such as elevated prolactin, or starting menopause early. An evaluation is needed to know the problem so possible solutions can be individualized for you. Good luck. ...Read more
