... I have excess estrogen and i knew a few basic things, but not too much. I learnt a lot about it from my thyroid doctor and did wonder why he was focusing so much on helping me lower my estrogen. It's only in the last week that i began delving into hormones a bit more and what role estrogen plays and it's not a nice one. Basically all the bad things that go on in our... (6 replies)
... get a starburst in the middle of my forehead every time I stood up. I would have to stop and breathe and kinda balance myself to keep from fainting.

... Hello Ladies, Thought I'd give you an update if you don't mind and also vent just a little. Today I saw my GI doc for consult on my iron deficiency issues. It was not a very fruitful visit because I still don't have any answers and didn't even get to ask all my questions. It was her last day before vacation and she was double-booked almost the whole day. She... (13 replies)

... Hey, concerning the iron deficiency anemia, I just found out that food containing tannic acid, such as coffee, chocolate, and red wine, will deplete iron. *cry* my three favorite things!!! anyway, avoid those things because they'll be working against all your efforts to get that H&H back up. good luck.

... Thanks Jean. Great username!!! I read about all of the procedures, but I only have one tiny fibroid and ten doctors have seen it on ultrasound.
