Estrogen

Could extra estrogen affect your menstrual cycle any way? What exactly makes your af stop when you are pregnant? I've been on extra estrogen (not much) for approx. 45 days...had regular 28 to 29 day af's for the past year -- but am currently 5 days late (was due the 2nd). Just wondering if the extra estrogen affects the menstrual cycle. I've had every other pregnancy symptom -- but could they be because of the estrogen also???

Ok..I looked a little more into this on the 'net. From what I've found is that the added estrogen actually causes HEAVIER periods since it thickens the lining. Hmmm..now that really makes me wonder why I'm late. I'm not sure if I'm going to make it to Friday to test. Since af was due on the 2nd...if it's going to be positive...I can test in the morning, right (6 days late)? Guess I can always buy more, but I don't want to turn into a PEOS-aholic!!
