Estrogen Dominance and Menopause

Estrogen Dominance and Menopause do not have to shake hands but most often do, in industrialized countries.

See if any of these are familiar:

  • Hot flashes AKA hot flush. Sporatic rushes of heat and perspiration, often accompanied by chills.  Many women experience these at a high rate during the night.  Liver cleansing has been very helpful as well the use of natural progesterone cream.  For some, an estriol creme – used as necessary – can alleviate the hot flashes and other effects.
  • Vaginal dryness is also very common with aging after menopause. The vagina becomes less elastic and pliable, vaginal walls become dryer, capillaries become more fragile and sex becomes more painful and less enjoyable.  Again, natural estriol has been very helpful for this concern and estriol oil can be applied right to the vaginal wall.
  • As dryness continues, for many many women, the onset and recurrence of vaginal and urinary tract infections becomes a regular concern.  This is common around 4 or more years post-menstruation; beyond the last menstrual cycle.  Symptoms are similar to those a man experiences with enlarged prostate; urgency to urinate, trickling (needing to go small amounts often) or not being able to urinate but having the feeling of needing to.
  • Headaches and migraines are often a signal of the onset of menopause – or the effects of estrogen imbalance.
  • Since the effects of estrogen imbalance include a dryness in the body, it makes sense that dry mouth, eyes and skin appear.
  • Poor memory, tenderness in the breast, tiredness and sleeplessness; insomnia.
  • Memory may become altered as well as poor concentration.
  • Heart palpitations and anxiety and last but not least a waning interest in sex.  Statistics continually show Women to be close to 50% more likely to have a heart attack after menopause.  Dr. Lee’s writings have spoken for years about the importance of progesterone cream after menopause to calm the heart.

There are many other symptoms of estrogen dominance and menopause but these are the most common.

Most natural enthusiasts will suggest natural progesterone, a liver cleansing supplement like milk thistle, dietary and lifestyle changes and exercise.   Read more about Estrogen Dominance and Diet.
