This is Dr. David

you are after your menopause.

what graph are you talking about.

that link doesn't give me a graph

it shows me you are using yahoo search for graphs and RSH and estradiol. these tend to show hormone levels for women in their cycle before menopause

Dr. Love and I were trying to interpret the human graphs in here: said that I could interpret a 12% decrease in FSH as a 5-7% increase in estrogen, because FSH is more sensitive than estrogen. Do you believe this?

we were trying to figure out how much estrogen one glass of wine created (because I'm worried about when I was in Africa and had 3--and that might keep the zometa from working)

it was the graph to the far right with the numbers at the left side
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is it true that in general FSH is more sensitive than estradiol?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

FSH is made by the pituitary response to your estrogen levels.

if you want to measure actual estrogen levels, estrogen or estrodiol will be more accurate.

you are looking for answers for questions that don't have answers.

your having 3 drinks in africa will not cause your breast cancer to come back.

this is your anxiety disorder making you worried.

no matter what articles say, you need to stop worrying about this.
