I have never had a "normal" cycle and at 26, almost 27, years of age, I finally found a doctor willing to do the work to try to figure out what is wrong. After extensive bloodwork we have found out that my testosterone is high (81) my progesterone is low (don't remember this level), and my estradiol or estrogen is VERY low (10). Per my doctor the only time she has seen estradiol levels as low as mine has been in menopausal or post-menopausal women. She told me that as far as she can tell there is 0% chance of me concieving on my own and very slight chance of me being able to carry a baby to term even with IVF. The icing on the cake is that she can't get me in for 2 weeks for our consultation so she can talk to me at further length and recommend me on to a specialist to recieve a diagnosis. We still don't know what's wrong, but its almost certain that I won't be able to have my own children. This is especially hard for me, since all I have ever had my mind set on in life was becoming a mother. I'm not a career driven woman in the least.
