Six hundred and twenty seven!

Doesn't really have the same ring as "One hundred and eighty!" but this number has much more significance to me: this was the oestrogen level in my latest blood test results!

Strangely the testosterone level is sticking resolutely around 2.0, it's only been as far down as 1.7 so I'm assuming that it's not really going to budge much now which is fine as it's in the middle of the acceptable female range.

One thing to bear in mind with the oestrogen level is that this is just over 24hrs after applying new patches so I would guess the average level is going to be a bit lower. It does help explain why, over the past few days I've felt a little discombobulated - I'd forgotten to change my patches (left it nearly 5 days!) so my levels would have been very low compared to this peak value.

Anyway, it seems that all other levels are normal so I should be fine to continue on with the medication I've got and let the hormones do their work.
