For a few years, my period has never been 'normal'... I'd have my period anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months. Most of the time it was spotting, but it just wouldn't ever completely go away, and if it did it only went away for a day.
I went to the gyno and they took a blood test, and I was told I have low estrogen levels. (I had it done twice and that was the result both times)
In July I was taken to the hospital because I had a really sharp pain in my right side, I thought it was my appendix. They did a catscan and it was fine. Then they did an ultrasound thinking it might be a cyst... but they said the ultrasound wont be 100% accurate because of the catscan. Again, they saw nothing and I was sent home.
But now everytime my period comes to an end, I'll get a little pain, or it'll just feel like there is something there.

Can low estrogen levels cause cysts? Could that even be what it is?
Everytime I look up low estrogen levels all I find is menopause lol and I'm 21 so I know it can't be THAT. I'm just having trouble researching this and I would like your opinions on what you think this might be, or even if someone can give me something that I could look up...
Thanks!
