Oestrogen Dominance

Oestrogen dominance
Feeling moody, irritable, or restless around your period? It might be Oestrogen Dominance. Let’s explore this hormonal imbalance and its impact on both women and men.

What is Oestrogen Dominance?

Oestrogen, the “female hormone,” plays a vital role in sexual development, immunity, metabolism, and more. Progesterone, another key hormone, regulates the menstrual cycle and reproductive system. A delicate balance between these two hormones is crucial. When oestrogen levels outweigh progesterone, we experience Oestrogen Dominance.

The types of Oestrogen:

  • Estrone: Weaker in menopausal women.
  • Estradiol: The most common unisex form, vital for male sperm production.
  • Estriol: Prepares women for childbirth during pregnancy.
Causes of Oestrogen Dominance:
  • Naturally: Some women naturally produce more oestrogen.
  • External factors: Certain medications, health conditions, and lifestyle choices can contribute:
    • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
    • In vitro fertilization (IVF)
    • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
    • Certain antibiotics
    • Being overweight or obese
    • Poor diet or malnutrition
    • Excessive stress, anxiety, or depression
    • Hormonal contraceptives
    • Environmental toxins and pollution
    • Lack of exercise
    • Some cosmetics containing xenoestrogens (mimicking natural oestrogen)
Symptoms in Women:
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Bloating and cold extremities
  • Decreased libido
  • Fibrocystic breast lumps
  • Hair loss
  • Headaches
  • Worsening PMS symptoms
  • Irregular or heavy periods
  • Memory problems
  • Mood swings
  • Breast tenderness and swelling
  • Sleep problems and fatigue
  • Weight gain
Symptoms in Men:
  • Many general symptoms overlap with women.
  • Impacts sexual health differently:
    • Infertility: Oestrogen is crucial for healthy sperm production.
    • Gynecomastia: Rare breast tissue growth in men due to high oestrogen.
    • Low libido: Oestrogen plays a role in male desire.
    • Studies also link Oestrogen Dominance to depression in men.
