The estrogen (mostly estradiol) vary quite a bit throughout the menstrual cycle. When is time of ovulation, levels rise to around 400 pg/ml. If your pregnant they are high too.The levels must be examined in the context of where you are in your reproductive life. Your thyroid is really unstable.  But  I read that estrogen suppresses thyroid hormone activity, an excess can lead to signs of low thyroid. Need to go do an ENDO and check all this.
