5 months no ovulation. Everything normal except e2 very low

Customer Question

Hi , 5 months no ovulation. Everything normal except e2 very low below 5. Stated on 2 MG estradiol 0.5 progeteron pills. Cyclo prognovA. Today is the last pill. Got curious made some tests. E2 went from 6 to 42 but progesterone is still very low 0.03. I'm suspecting no ovulation again. Do these tipe type of pills cause period without ovulation? just shredding of lining.

ovulation is caused by a spike of LH leutinizing hormone spike in mid cycle caused by your pituitary gland.

you should see an endocrinologist to see if your pituitary gland is making LH properly during your cycle.
