Estradiol for years: It seems that your estrogen regimen or your dosage of estradiol may have to be reviewed and probably increased to alleviate your menopausal symptoms of "sweating and flushing". Most menopause experts believe that in the absence of contraindications, the benefits to you of continuing using estrogens (pills, patches, creams or vaginally) until at least age 52-55 outweigh the risks. ...Read more

I have an estrogen level of 636. I am 55, complete hyst in1999 & have been on 2 mg estrodiol daily. Why is it so high?

A few possibilities: If your "complete hysterectomy" means removal of uterus and cervix only but one or both ovaries were not removed and you take estradiol, then your estrogen level is really not "high". If both ovaries were removed, the source of your estrogens can be your body fat, your adrenal glands, your pills, dietary hormones etc? May wish to get a copy of your pathology report or consult an endocrinologist. ...Read more

Estrogen: Endometriosis needs estrogens to make symptoms. If after stopping the Estradiol 1mg - which is a low dose and should not cause endometriosis to grow to begin with - symptoms what is thought to be endometriosis persists, that diagnosis needs to be challenged - it's unlikely to be endometriosis. ...Read more

I'm on testosterone therapy, I keep hearing that some of it converts to estrogen. Does it convert to estrone or estrodiol or estriol or all three?

I'm on testosterone therapy, I keep hearing that some of it converts to estrogen. Does it convert to estrone or estrodiol or estriol or all three?

Estradiol: Estradiol is synthesized via aromatase from testosterone. Estrone is synthesized via aromatase from androstenedione. Estriol is synthesized from both Estradiol and estrone. Estradiol is ~10 times as potent as estrone and ~80 times as potent as estriol in its estrogenic effect. In some men on t replacement, too much t is converted to Estradiol and may require a drug like Arimidex (anastrozole) to block. ...Read more

Labs are not key: Testicular size varies tremendously and correlates with nothing much. There are two questions. Are you horny, getting erections, and ejaculating (partner, alone) like your friends do? If so, great. If not, a work up is in order. Are you producing sperms so you can be a father if you want? That is a different lab test. Get it done. Your small testes may reflect infertility. Find out now. ...Read more

How long does it take for caffeine to work?

Caffeine Time: Ceffeine is absorbed from your stomach into the bloodstream pretty rapidly. Really it depends how much food is in your stomach at the time the caffeine containing substance is ingested. If your stomach is empty, I would expect to feel the effects in 15-20 minutes. If your stomach is full, it might take 45 minutes to 1 hour but the effect would last longer. ...Read more
