In brief: Adrenal estrogen

You still have some estrogen produced by your adrenal glands.
Relax, estrogen deficiency can lead to many things like vaginal dryness and bone loss -- but it doesn't lead to alzheimer's or lung cancer. Some women are potential candidates for estrogen replacement therapy. Check w/your doctor.
