does anyone have papers whether high E2 can actually convert over to androgens? i've heard this as an excuse to keep E2 doses/levels low from doctors, but afaict this doesn't actually really happen? there's no pathway i can find that would do this and i can't think of why crossregulation like that would occur, especially if high E2 with low E2:E1 ratio is pushing down FSH/LH
this should've said low e1:e2 oops
@er1n this is completely unhelpful but i have my first meeting with an endo soon and aaaaa this is all so complicated and poorly understood
@er1n this is also something i've been told and want answers to
@kew i don't think it's true (i'm inclined to believe the will powers presentation everyone points to on this) but i'd like Specific Confirmation that i can show my doctor ngl
