Re: Is it ok -- low estrogen levels?

If you are worried, ask to have your levels tested. It's a simple blood test. If they are indeed off, they could be indicitive of a problem so you'll know what you are facing. But they also could be fine.

I am 33 and found out I have diminished ovarian reserve and will likely go through menopause sooner. My first sign was low progesterone. Further testing led to other things being off. But if you have a relative that went through menopause at 30, I would be getting checked out if you think things are looking similar for you. You wouldn't want to waste any time if in fact you are in the same situation. That said, you really don't know without getting tested - so don't worry that the same will happen to you until you know for sure if it will or not.
