Causes of Estrogen Dominance

In women, nature’s counter-balance to the stimulatory effects of estrogen is the hormone progesterone. In men it is the hormone testosterone. When estrogen levels become too high or progesterone/testosterone levels are too low (or both) then the result is estrogen dominance.

Diagnosis

Your doctor will run a Progesterone deficiency self assessment questionnaire to diagnose this condition.

Treatment for Estrogen Dominance

The first step is finding out if you actually do have a hormonal imbalance, or if you suffer from another condition with similar symptoms. An excellent starting point is to evaluate the severity of your symptoms. Taking a simple 15-item self-assessment questionnaire, Progesterone Deficiency Assessment Questionnaire, gives you an instant evaluation of the severity of your symptoms and also a baseline measurement by which to gauge your responsiveness to treatment.

An estrogen-dominant woman will usually experience a worsening of symptoms if given estrogen. Often, doctors will prescribe estrogen to women and ignore progesterone and testosterone.
