What is Estrogen?
Estrogen is an important sex hormone produced in our adrenal glands, and in the ovaries of women and the testes of men. It is a hormone critical to puberty, fertility, and overall good health, but when the body has too much estrogen, known as estrogen dominance, health issues arise.
What is Estrogen Dominance?
Estrogen dominance means that your body has too much estrogen in relation to progesterone and is associated with both unpleasant symptoms and chronic illness. Our bodies can become estrogen dominant through several ways including things like lifestyle and diet, stress, and taking in xenoestrogens, which are chemicals (both natural and artificial) in our environment which mimic estrogen.
Symptoms of Estrogen Dominance
- Breast tenderness / fullness
- Decreased sex drive
- Weight gain in the hips/thigh/bottom
- Menstrual changes, irregularity, heavy flow, cramps/mood changes/migraines
- Hair changes, loss, brittle, thinning or color loss
- Fertility issues, difficulty getting pregnant and risk of miscarriage with low progesterone
- Mood swings, depression, anxiety and feeling off
- Water retention
- Insomnia and poor-quality sleep
- Weight gain regardless of good diet
- Low thyroid function
“I feel great! Natural progesterone has given me my life back back and I can’t imagine being without it now.”
Can Men Become Estrogen Dominant?
Yes, as men age progesterone and thus testosterone levels drop. When combined with diet, stress, and the many xenoestrogens in the environment, it is increasingly common for men to suffer from too much estrogen. Some of the symptoms of estrogen dominance in men are: infertility, sexual dysfunction (ED), breast development (Gynecomastia), and depression. Estrogen dominance in men is also associated with an increase risk of stock and cancer.
What is Progesterone?
Progesterone is a hormone made primarily in the ovaries in women and the testes in men. The body essentially uses cholesterol to make pregnenolone, and then converts pregnenolone into progesterone. Progesterone is most well-known for its role in the female reproductive cycle but is also a precursor to other hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone and also helps regulate blood sugar, build bones and maintain healthy brain activity.
When it comes to fertility progesterone stimulates the uterus to prepare the way for a baby during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. It is critical for building up the walls to support a fertilized egg to grow into a child. If the egg is not fertilized, progesterone levels drop again, signaling menstruation to begin.
If the egg is fertilized, and pregnancy takes place, progesterone levels will continue to increase, as it has several important roles in the baby-growing process. For example, progesterone stimulates the growth of blood vessels to supply the womb with food for the fetus and it strengthens the uterus to prepare for labor.
What happens when we start using Progesterone?
Sometimes estrogen dominance symptoms can increase when first starting progesterone cream. This is usually due to not using a high enough dose which ends up stimulating estrogen but is not enough for progesterone to become dominant, as it should be.
Often women stop when this happens, thinking they cannot tolerate progesterone and stopping does reduce symptoms initially. But ironically what they really needed was to increase their dose until their symptoms were relieved and progesterone was the dominant hormone and therefore you are no longer Estrogen dominant. This estrogen dominant experience can initially take a few cycles to get on top of and may require much larger doses until you are asymptomatic and stable, at which point you can carefully and slowly reduce to a maintenance dose, usually around 100-200mg per day.
