Hormone Deficiency in Menopause

Whether entering menopause naturally or surgically via hysterectomy, the drastic decline and eventual cessation of both estrogen and progesterone can lead to a host of symptoms and decreased quality of life for women.  Most women know that estrogen is lost in menopause.  Additionally, the symptoms of progesterone deficiency are the same in menopause as with PMS.

Symptoms of Estrogen Deficiency include:

  • Hot Flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Foggy Thinking
  • Incontinence
  • Thinning Skin
  • Osteoporosis

Estrogens play an important role in protecting bones, sustaining a healthy cardiovascular system, regulating the reproductive system, and preserving brain function.  There are three naturally occurring estrogens—estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), and estriol (E3).  Of these, estrone is the most potent.

Treatment of Estrogen Deficiency*

*  Because of the risk factors of taking estrogen alone, estrogen should always be taken in balance with progesterone, even if a woman still has her ovaries.
