Symptoms of Estrogen Imbalance

Care to know more about the symptoms of estrogen imbalance? Let us help you get some answers and then provide you with a probable solution to get back in balance.

Progesterone and estrogen balance each other in the body and if those hormones are out of balance it can cause a host of issues that will impact everything from PMS symptoms to fertility issues.

Think of it this way. Progesterone is the break pedal and estrogen is the gas pedal on the car of your life.    Acceleration is necessary but 90 miles an hour on the country roads of life, is not. A balance of progesterone will result in a better balance of estrogen.  Too much estrogen imbalance will also accelerate aging.

During fertile times in a woman’s life if estrogen is the dominant hormone over progesterone, chaos ensues. During the onset and even in peri-menopause estrogen levels drop significantly and progesterone production basically stops all together except for a very small amount in the adrenal glands.

The shift in those hormones at menopause is what triggers the unpleasant symptoms that many women experience. The importance of keeping progesterone and estrogen balanced in the many stages of a woman’s life is essential to keeping other hormones in balance as well. Balance leads to a healthier life and eliminates a host of unpleasant health experiences.

Hormones are EVERYTHING to a woman. Heck it influences every aspect of a woman’s emotional state and moods.

Progesterone balances estrogen and in doing so minimizes the negative effects of estrogen progesterone imbalance. We know this affects your daily life as well as what is happening in your body.

Without proper balance of estrogen and progesterone, puberty, fertility years and menopause can become the horrible teens, infertility and the dreaded “M” word; menopause.

When your body is out of whack in these two hormones it is usually estrogen dominance. This means too much estrogen compared to the levels of progesterone.

A common term for chemical estrogens that can be a cause for this is termed “xenoestrogens”.   Xenoestrogens are present in some plastics, carpeting, the inside of canned foods, as well as other chemically treated environment.  Studies have shown for many years that even men who work in industries with these chemicals, including scientists, have developed feminine characteristics such as high voices, enlarged breasts and smaller testicles; among many.

Watch for symptoms of improvement, when using supplemental progesterone or other natural products, showing your hormones are moving back into balance.  Studies and testimonies have shown that using a natural progesterone cream has been very successful in bringing about that change.

Some estrogen dominant symptoms would include the following:

  • irregular menstrual flow
  • cramping with your period
  • bloating
  • depression
  • irritability
  • migraine headaches (usually coinciding with your cycle) A dab of progesterone cream on the temples can do wonders for this one.
  • Insomnia – also consider How to Sleep Remedy for an all natural supplement that will help you with sleep as well as enhancing weight loss, great skin, hair and nails.

  • sluggish metabolism – Acai Xtra is a wonderful energy enhancing dietary supplement for sure, steady weight loss.   Acai Berry Fat Burner
  • thyroid dysfunction  – Thyroid Caps
  • cancer of the uterus
  • fibroids
  • zinc deficiency and more.

That is quite a list. If you were to match this up with symptoms of low progesterone you would find that they are similar. The progesterone balances out the estrogen. When there is balance there is no estrogen imbalance.

Hope you found this helpful. Consider adding Cycle Balance Progesterone Cream or Happy PMS natural progesterone cream to your regimen and we can almost promise you will begin the journey back to sanity.
