What is estrogen?
Available in three different forms (estradiol, estrone, and estriol), estrogen is primarily secreted in the ovaries and is essential to healthy sexual function. Additionally, this vital hormone greatly contributes to the development of secondary sex characteristics including:
- Increased metabolism
- Uterine and endometrial growth
- Thickening of the vaginal wall
- A decrease in bone disintegration
Estrogen promotes optimal cardiovascular health and prevents signs and symptoms of menopause. To learn more about estrogen, schedule your consultation with us!
What can affect estrogen levels?
Numerous factors can lead to a decline in levels of estrogen, one of the more common being menopause. Whether through menopause or alternative factor, estrogen deficiencies can result in a variety of symptoms that include:
