If estrogen levels are low it will affect your menstruation cycle. In such women the lining of the uterus is scant and not hospitable to a pregnancy. More often than not ovulation may not occur at all.
In situations where a woman is not getting her periods normally and the underlying cause can’t be changed, estrogen-containing medications eg estradiol can help to induce ovulation which is necessary for a pregnancy to occur.
