Get your estrogen dominance treatment soon!

How often have you heard the term estrogen dominance and could not make head nor tail of what it meant?

How often have you googled your symptoms and found out by Dr Google that you may have a case of estrogen dominance?

It happens to the best of us.

Every menstrual problem is not a case of estrogen dominance.

But every mood swing may be more than just a mood swing and could have estrogen dominance as the underlying factor.

What we are trying to say is that the symptoms and signs of estrogen dominance are varied.

In this article, everything you need to know about estrogen dominance will be clarified.

What are estrogen dominance and the signs of estrogen dominance?

To put it in the simplest terms, estrogen is a hormone.

A male and female body is comprised of sex hormones that regulate the sexual function, in the case of females - the reproductive cycle, and the secondary sexual characteristics of both sexes.

When these hormones tend to rise or fall, it causes an imbalance in the body and associated complications.

Estrogen is one such hormone, whose levels if varied, can cause hay-wire in the body.

In males too?

Of course.

Contrary to popular belief, estrogen is present in males and females. While its role in a female is vital, in males too it assists in the sexual characteristics to some degree.

Symptoms of estrogen dominance in females

In females, it is slightly harder to point to estrogen dominance. This is because the symptoms associated are not exclusive to the condition, but present themselves in other scenarios too.

However, the most common symptoms of estrogen dominance in females are:

Fibrocystic lumps in the breast

Decreased sex drive

Irregular menstrual periods

Increase in PMS (Pre Menstrual Syndrome) symptoms

Symptoms of estrogen dominance in males:

In males, estrogen is usually present in minimal amounts. Testosterone is the dominant hormone. Thus, any slight increase in estrogen levels can cause dramatic changes in the male body, such as:

Infertility due to low sperm count. Estrogen helps in the sperm production process.

Gynecomastia, or as commonly known as ‘male breasts’.

Erectile dysfunction

Should you go get an estrogen dominance test done?

It is highly recommended. Once you start observing symptoms that may lead you to believe that the hormone levels are off, take a test.

How does an estrogen dominance test work?

Through saliva and blood testing, the hormone levels will be determined. A hormone panel constitutes an estrogen dominance test.

This helps determine the spikes or decreases in the estrogen levels and is thus suggestive of estrogen dominance in a person.

Through the results of the estrogen dominance test, the naturopath will be able to help you with ways to control it.
