Hi, I am 39 & I have had no period since 4/2. Plus a few weeks ago I had some blood tests which revelled I had a low ostrogen level. My oestrogen levels have always been OK before. The two menstual cycles before my periods went were 58days & 19days both lasted 3 days. I have just had my gallbladder out 2wKs ago as it had stopped functioning properly. So since November last year I have had pain , nausea & little appetite. So because of this I lost 3 stone I am now 9St 8lb & am 5ft 7. I had my gallbladder out 2wks ago. So that is OK now, no pain,nausea etc.
I have been feeling very tearful, (not depressed) even nice things start me off. More fatigued than usual. My joints in my hands & knee are very stiff & sore. Plus I am suffering urinary urgency, get a few seconds warning sometimes.
Are any of these linked to the low oestrogen. What are the likely causes of low oestrogen levels.
I do have a chronic illness too.
Any help,advice or reassurance welcome
