14 Dec Oestrogen Dominance
Oestrogen levels decrease during menopause but they don’t fall substantially until after our last period. Many of the symptoms of the perimenopause are due to the effects of Oestrogen dominance. This doesn’t mean we have too much oestrogen, it means that we have more oestrogen relative to our progesterone.
When we ovulate we produce progesterone but as we ovulate less and less our progesterone levels decrease and so the oestrogen in our bodies becomes dominate, runs riot and overstimulates both the brain and the body. ⠀
