5 Points In Life When Women Suffer From Estrogen Dominance

Comments: 0 | June 24th, 2011

Do you have estrogen dominance? It’s more common than you may think. The fact that xenoestrogens, chemicals that mimic the effects of estrogen, are present in the meat and dairy products we consume, the plastics in which we heat our food, and the petroleum products we rub into our skin is enough to swing the hormone pendulum toward estrogen dominance.

But did you know that there are five specific times in a woman’s life when she is at heightened risk for estrogen dominance?

2.After childbirth
3.When taking birth control pills
4.During midlife
5.When placed on counterfeit hormones, such as Premarin, prior to or after menopause.

What are the symptoms of estrogen dominance?

Symptoms of estrogen dominance include:

•Premenstrual headaches often migraine in nature
•Fluid retention
•Fibrocystic breast disease
•Uterine fibroids
•Menorrhagia (heavy, painful menstrual periods)
•Functional hypothyroidism
•The incidence of breast cancer also increases when a woman suffers from estrogen dominance.

If you or a beloved friend, mother or daughter, are in one of these phases of life and are suffering from the symptoms of estrogen dominance, the key is to balance out the estrogen with bioidentical progesterone. Rather than patch up the symptoms with birth control pills, pain medication or surgery, simply fix the underlying problem. Bring your body back to hormonal balance by giving your body what it needs: bioidentical progesterone.
