I am actually finding conflicting info on this.....Do your estrogen levels increase or decrease during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
Thanks!

My best friend recently was tested and had practically NO estrogen in her system!! She went from pregnant to nursing to pregnant to nursing (total of 4 years). At least the nursing part is very estrogen depleting, not sure about pregnancy.

BTW: she also had a progesterone only birth control (Nuva Ring maybe?) during the last 18 months (nursing) of that 4 years. Her estrogen depletion is also accompanied by (related or not, she's not sure yet) a bunch of other issues.

My estrogens levels while breastfeeding are very low, and I feel like there are ways in which I am getting a peek at what menopause will be like in terms of body changes.
