Estrogen Dominance

What are the symptoms of estrogen dominance?

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 are:

  • Migraines
  • Endometriosis
  • Infertility
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Decreased libido
  • Multiple miscarriages
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Premenstrual mood swings
  • Premenstrual headaches
  • Severe menstrual cramps
  • Anxiety, panic attacks, or depression
  • Fibrocystic breast disease
  • Premenstrual breast tenderness
  • Premenstrual fluid retention and weight gain
  • Heavy periods with clotting

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.

Dr. Patel has this experience and highly recommends and offers ProgesterAll, by John Lee, M.D. Solutions, which contains natural progesterone at the levels that Dr. Lee recommended in his book "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause."
