 It is important to ask your doctor this question, having good communication with your health care provider can make a difference in the outcome of your fertility.  Obviously there is hormonal imbalance.  There could be improper function in the ovaries, endocrine system (hormonal feedback loop).

Some herbs that may help with low estrogen are-


Black Cohosh is generally used for Menopausal women, sometimes to bring on menstruation and to lower high progesterone levels.


Black Cohosh has an estrogenic action and may reduce levels of pituitary luteinizing hormone, in turn decreasing the ovaries' production of the hormone progesterone.


Licorice Rt.-contains isoflavones (so does soy) which are known to be estrogenic.


Red Clover-flavinoids in the flowering tops and leaves are estrogenic


Soy-mimics natural estrogen in our bodies


Maca-In women, maca works by controlling estrogen in the body. Estrogen levels that are high or low at the wrong time can keep a woman from becoming pregnant or keep her from carrying to term.


I hope this helps.
