There are three fundamental types of estrogen; estrone, estradiol and estriol. Additionally, progesterone, testosterone and DHEA (the adrenal precursor to testosterone) are added to the mix. These are truly natural hormones and are available by prescription. These hormones can be readily adjusted to fit a female’s unique needs which will help alleviate symptoms of hormones that have gone awry.
When a woman starts experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance she should listen to what her body is trying to tell her. It is a common misconception that menopause is based on estrogen deficiency which sends many women running for estrogen replacement therapy at the first sign of symptoms. In truth, while estrogen levels do tend to fall during menopause they do not fall off appreciably until the last period has occurred.
Rather, many women actually suffer the effects of too much estrogen during this time, meaning they have too much estrogen in relation to progesterone. The symptoms of estrogen dominance can begin as early as the mid-thirties and last for several years.
Various symptoms of estrogen over stimulation may include; a decrease in sex drive, bloating, breast tenderness or swelling, irregular or abnormal periods, headaches, mood swings, irritability and depression, weight gain, thyroid dysfunction and symptoms associated with it, hair loss or thinning, a sluggish metabolism, foggy thinking, trouble sleeping, fatigue and PMS symptoms. This list is certainly not all inclusive. An overabundance of estrogen has also been linked to autoimmune disorders, allergies, female cancers and other problems such as cysts, breast cancer, infertility and blood clots. It has also been indicated in the acceleration of the aging process.
Problems will typically start to occur as a woman reaches perimenopause and starts to experience cycles where no ovulation occurs. Since estrogen is dominant in the two weeks leading up to ovulation and then balanced by progesterone during the last two weeks, an unbalanced cycle can occur when there is no ovulation. With no progesterone to combat it, estrogen runs unchecked.
Lack of ovulation is only one reason why there may be estrogen dominance. Other factors that contribute may include; a low fiber diet, excess body fat, stress which can lead to adrenal fatigue and affect all hormones, environmental agents and impaired immune function.
