The question as to whether you are estrogen dominant (ED) or not can be described as being deficient, normal or excess estrogen but with little to no progesterone to balance it out.
Some conditions associated with ED are, but not limited to:
Decreased sex drive
Fat gain around the midsection
The best way to tell if this could be you is to pay attention to what your body is telling you, discover how to listen to its subtle signals on a monthly basis.
One of the best ways to do this is to keep a journal, noting down symptoms and look for patterns.
During this time in our lives, it can be quite difficult to test hormones levels as they fluctuate so much. It can be a good idea to get a baseline test but symptoms might just be the best way to tell for sure.
Want to know one of the main causes of ED? Stress! There are other causes but this is a big one and one we could all do to reduce every day.
