Experimental: Transdermal Estradiol
Subjects will undergo estradiol administration for up to 9 days. Transdermal estradiol patches will be applied each day by study staff during study days two through nine (patches deliver 0.1 mg/day for a total dose of up to 0.6 mg/day).
Subjects will receive graded doses of transdermal estradiol patches for up to 7 days. Blood estradiol tests will be performed daily, and the number of estradiol patches used will be adjusted to maintain serum estradiol levels of 250-400 pg/ml. Estradiol is a natural hormone.

- Estradiol-induced change in 24-hour urinary LH excretion [ Time Frame: Change occurring over up to 7 days of estradiol administration ]The estradiol-induced change in 24-hour urinary LH excretion is defined as the 24-hour urinary LH excretion immediately prior to estradiol administration vs. the peak 24-hour urinary LH excretion during estradiol administration.
- Estradiol-induced change in 24-hour urinary FSH excretion [ Time Frame: Change occurring over up to 7 days of estradiol administration ]The estradiol-induced change in 24-hour urinary FSH excretion is defined as the 24-hour urinary FSH excretion immediately prior to estradiol administration vs. the peak 24-hour urinary FSH excretion during estradiol administration.
