How to Tell if You Have Oestrogen Dominance: Signs, Symptoms & Treatment

There are over 50 hormones in the human body, and they all need to be in balance in order to function correctly. Hormones help with everything from metabolism and reproduction to growth and mood. Oestrogen is one of the most important hormones in the body, but when it’s out of balance, it can cause a host of problems.

Oestrogen dominance occurs when there is too much oestrogen in the body relative to other hormones like progesterone. This can lead to headaches, bloating, mood swings, fatigue, anxiety and weight gain. Oestrogen dominance can cause a wide range of health problems, so it’s important to be aware of the signs and symptoms and see a doctor if you think you might be affected.

It was once thought that only women could suffer from oestrogen dominance, but we’re now learning more about male hormone balance and how oestrogen impacts this. Although hormones may be within the normal range for your sex, the ratio of estrogen to progesterone/ testosterone can shift, causing problems throughout the body.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss the signs and symptoms of oestrogen dominance as well as some best ways to address your hormone imbalance.
