BCP: Not certain how to answer this. One had low and the other higher levels. Difference is in side effects and risk of blood clots. I would go to drug.com and compare the ones you are reading about and discuss with your Dr. ...Read more
Less side effect: Some drs. Believe that despite "low estrogen" dosis is suppose to reduce the risk of side effects but also augments the number of ovulations. All birth control pills, patches, rings, injections produce the changes of a pregnancy in a woman but the majority of the time without a baby & still c a minimal chance of conceiving but aborting when the fetus can not get attached to the uterine lining. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have elevated dhea levels (345) and low estrogen, I am 31 years old and do not have any tumors. Could birth control help balance this out?
If you mean DHEAS: your level is normal. Why are you taking DHEA? It's metabolized to either cortisone, estrogen or testosterone and you can't control which one. Also, most of the DHEA pills don't really have much DHEA in them. You haven't provided enough facts to really tell you anything, Birth control isn't really used to "balance" anything WHy are you on estrogen and also BCP's? Talk w/your doctor, ...Read more

How can I trigger a period naturally and safely? Don't want to go back on birth control for adult amenorrhea and low estrogen.
What is better to treat low estrogen in 30 yr old female (6 p/mg), Premarin (conjugated estrogens) , estradiol or birth control?
Depends: If you have an intact uterus then I would use a birth control pill as it provides both the estrogen and progesterone you need to prevent pregnancy and endometrial hyperplasia. If you have had a hysterectomy than both premarin (conjugated estrogens) and estradiol (estrace) would be fine. The estrogen in birth control by the way is estradiol as well. Birth control also lowers ovarian cancer risk (combined pills only) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Primary amenorrhea: Hi. You have a condition called primary amenorrhea. Have you had normal breast development? There are many potential causes of primary amenorrhea.

Does ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control cause weight gain/bloating? I have tried other low-estrogen bc pills and had awful side effects with weight gain.
Are there any birth control pills available to treat PCOS that are low in estrogen/estrogen-free? I have migraines and am currently on Yaz, and want to reduce my stroke risk. I'm in college and the OBGYN clinic here on campus is very unhelpful.
Hmmm...: Short answer is yes: there are low-estrogen oral contraceptives. Not sure you'd want to do that, though. First, the ovarian cysts can only be controlled if ovulation is stopped, and this requires taking estrogen to inhibit pituitary FSH release. Without estrogen the cysts might rage out of control. This estrogen must (I believe) be balanced with progesterone and testosterone, EVEN in PCOS patients ...Read more
