Unable to tell.

Hemorrhages
Can't tell without knowing what hormones have been measured and why. Seems like someone has already begun an evaluation. Stick with them and ask the same questions.

Dr. Helmy Guirgis answered:

Since my estrogen is low and I just started having cramping right in the middle above my pelvis does that mean ovarian cancer?

Unlikely,

Ovarian_cancer
Your age and presentation suggest many other likely diagnosis. Incidentally, how did you know that your estrogen is low? Cramps in 39 y female could are likely to be due to menstrual cycles. When does cramping occur? Cyst, Infection, review of other systems... Cancer is low on the list. The differential is wide open. Relax and go to general practioner who would be very helpful in your case.

My wife has very high estrogen level she did have ovarian cancer which was removed she had blood tests the other day and her estrogen level were 2000?

Talk with your doc

Ovarian_cancer
As a gynecologic oncologist, I don't usually follow estrogen as a marker for ovarian cancer. There are a few rare exceptions (Granulosa cell tumors). Estrogen is also made in fat cells. You and your wife should have a conversation with her doctor about why they are sending estrogen levels at all. Aromatase inhibitors are a group of drugs that prevent estrogen production and can be used to treat.

Dr. Alan Feldman answered:

Can you have normal testosterone and estrogen levels with multiple ovarian cyst and still be considered to have pcos?

Yes

Polycystic_ovarian_disease
PCOS is a clinical syndrome. It is not diagnosed by blood test results, though high male hormone levels, or other tests suggestive of insulin resistance, can support the diagnosis. If you have problems with irregular periods, weight gain, excess hair growth, you can be diagnosed with PCOS, despite normal lab results.

Dr. David I. Kurss answered:

I am a 43 yo non smoker with an ovarian cyst. Which pill is best a pop or estrogen/progestin? Or are there other options?Thank you.

All are fine

Cyst
Ovarian cysts are common and while they are more frequently associated with progestin only pills, if you are healthy any of these options ( including a Nuvaring, Nexplanon, IUD, as well) are fine. The best birth control option is the one that you feel comfortable with, tolerate, and you will use correctly. Good luck.

Dr. Matthew Palmer answered:

What is the best (type of) oral birth control to help with the occurrence of ovarian cysts? Estrogen progesterone ratios and such....

Combined OCP

Mono
There is not a great answer to this question. Many types of OCP's can be helpful in preventing large cysts from forming. However, this is not a fool proof treatment either. Many people will still develop cysts. I would recommend trying any combined TRI or mono-phasic pill either to a cyclic fashion (monthly or quarterly periods) or in a continuous fashion (skipping periods) to see what works for u

Progesterone and estrogen used for premature ovarian failure?

Yes

Menest
For woman with premature ovarian failure (POF), we recommend Hormone replacement therapy, which includes both estrogen and progesterone. The addition of progesterone is to regulate menstrual period and prevent uterine cancer. For woman desires for pregnancy, we may be able to reduce her FSH level and induce ovulation in some patients.

Dr. Regina Hampton answered:

Do fibrocystic breast disease and ovarian estrogen have any kind of relation to each other?

Yes

Concern_for_diet_while_breastfeeding
Estrogen levels can cause the fibrocystic changes to be more active which causes increased lumpiness and breast pain.

I have polycystic ovarian syndrome. Should I start taking estrogen? I get hair in weird places, like on my chin and neck

No

Polycystic_ovarian_disease
With PCOS the estrogen level is chronically elevated and additional estrogen will not help. OCP's (which do contain estrogen) however would likely help by suppression of the ovaries. The hair changes you notice are probaly due to increased testosterone levels seen with PCOS and would probably improve with OCP's as well.

concerned about my ovarian reserve. My mother stopped having her periods at age 39. My FSH/Estrogen was 10.5/67 day 3. What Other tests can done?

AMH test

Trying_to_conceive
Talk to your doctor about an antimullerian hormone test. Anti-mullerian hormone or factor is a blood test to see how the ovaries are still working. It can be done any time in the cycle. It shows how many eggs are left to develop in a woman's ovaries. A low level indicates a lower probability of success in trying to get pregnant. A higher number is encouraging.
