Estrogen is the hormone responsible for creating the female shape and controls the menstrual cycle.  It is actually a family of feminine hormones with estradiol being the most common natural form. Bio-Identical Estrogens are used for hormone replacement therapy in peri-menopausal, menopausal, and post-menopausal women to treat symptoms of estrogen deficiency.
Common Signs and Symptoms of Estrogen Deficiency:
- Hair loss on top of head
- col-xs, fine wrinkles around eyes and mouth
- Dry, irritated eyes
- Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse
- Lack of sexual desire
- Fatigue and discouragement
- Painful periods and severe cramping

Consult your practitioner about the benefits and side effects of increasing your estrogen levels through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Also speak to your practitioner about natural progesterone to be taken with estrogen.
