Symptoms of Estrogen Dominance

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0 | August 1st, 2011

Symptoms of estrogen dominance range from mildly annoying to severe. When a woman consults a physician for help with these symptoms, she is generally given two options: surgery, usually a hysterectomy, or prescription drugs, most often counterfeit hormones that actually worsen the problem. Rarely is she told that her problem is likely the result of estrogen dominance and that natural, bioidentical progesterone could alleviate her symptoms.
Common Symptoms and Disorders Associated with Estrogen Dominance
•Severe menstrual cramps
•Heavy periods with clotting
•Irregular menstrual cycles
•Uterine fibroids
•Ovarian cysts
•Multiple miscarriages
•Fibrocystic breast disease
•Premenstrual breast tenderness
•Premenstrual fluid retention and weight gain
•Anxiety, panic attacks, or depression
•Premenstrual mood swings
•Premenstrual headaches
•Decreased libido
While these symptoms may be common, they are not normal. They are indications of declining ovarian function and the resulting imbalance of estrogen and progesterone. If you suffer from any of these problems, you owe it to yourself to find a doctor who is experienced in treating female hormonal imbalances with natural, bioidentical hormones.
