6 Month Check-up

In August 2008 it had been 6 months since my previous appointment and it was time for my next check-up with the endocrinologist Dr Gilfillan.  I  had a blood test a week before to check how my hormone levels are functioning. I sat in the waiting room nervously waiting to be called in and fingers crossed everything is all good. I was called in and to be relieved when Dr Gilfillan said that the Blood test results were really good. My hormone levels still functioning normally with the main hormone Prolactin with a reading of 310 mIU/L (within the regular range of 0-500). My menstrual cycle has become irregular again  and he wanted to try me on HRT as my estrogen levels were a little low. A small dose to hopefully regulate my cycle. Dr Gilfillan wants to see me again in 2 months to see how the new tablet was effecting my cycle and see if the estrogen levels returned to normal,  unless I have any other concerns before this. He gave me a script for the HRT Estrogen supplement, a referral for another blood test and will be seeing Dr Gilfillan in 2 months time to see how my hormones are going.
