Estradiol and water retention

Common Questions and Answers about Estradiol and water retention


Avatar n tn A bunch of other symptoms went away too (my acne's cleared up, water retention is far less, and my energy is back). It's interesting because I've been told decidual casts happen following progesterone surges (and I have no idea what would have caused that), but my family doc says my bleeds are more indicative of estrogen dominance. No one's tested my hormones, other than prolactin (which was elevated shortly after the presumed m/c).
Avatar f tn Since being on Tamoxefen almost 3 and a half years I have noticed alot of water retention and gas lately. Can this happen now after taking it for this long? I cannot stand the pressure of the gas and the water weight makes it impossible to wear any of my clothing in comfort. I understood that the gain would be initially and not now. Also, I have alot of gastrointestenal problems on this drug, night sweats are terrible, discharge and so much more.
Avatar n tn I do know that when I started hormones all my HA went away along with all my aches in joints, sweats, water retention, etc. From having 4 sisters in menapause also a clientel of women I talk with all day that these are menapausal systems. Going off hormones will be another true test. Thanks for the suggestions on chinese herb and Rem. I am also back to my accupucturist..
Avatar n tn My fingers and face was swollen with water. My periods would last sometimes the entire month and were super heavy. I tried several different pills and nothing stopped it. Immediately when starting Yaz I stopped bleeding. I peed for like 4 days straight and lost all the water weight. I also get migraines with my period, and Yaz hasnt seemed to help them at all. The first 3 weeks I had horrid migraine. The most noticable change though is that I am extremely emotional.
Avatar n tn Also i puree fruit and put it in ice cube trays it is an extra boost to water as well i also drink ginger ale 3 a day (cans) i am 200 ponds now and i am 5 foot 3 also to get yourself used to walking like i did my initial work out was walking down my driveway and to the door 2 times a day.
Avatar f tn Regarding horomones, how are your testosterone and prolactin levels? You said calcium was high, how about Mg and K +. Do you drink water regularly, get to spend a daily amount of time in the sun? Eat well....or at least supplement based on whole foods? Do you walk regularly outside, participate in hobbies, have at least a few strong close social bonds that you can really confide in....etc?
Avatar f tn Fluctuating weight, water retention, puffy face especially in the mornings. Dismal muscle tone with flabby underarms although I have skinny shoulders. Cold sores. As a child I developed severe knock knees (my knees are still weak and can bend freaky backwards) and scoliosis as well as a very small jaw which ended in years of orthodontistry. Lately I noticed my shoe size has increased. I also had cholera and recurrant ameobic infections as a teenager.

Avatar f tn Some pretty common ones are mood swings, head aches, appetite changes and water retention. If the meds work well, you may feel some abdominal discomfort and distention. Presumably you will know if they are working well because you will be doing estradiol levels and ultrasounds to follow your progress. It sounds like your RE is on top of your diagnosis, and that you are only dealing with one problem, so you should have a good shot! Good luck!
Avatar n tn I also take Colace daily and stay on a high fiber diet and drink a LOT of water. I hope this helps a little - I didn't realize so many others are suffering from similar issues. Best of luck to all of you.
Avatar f tn She also alluded to possibly a liver detox as well. Tho I did read that lemon juice and water were great at detoxing the liver. Hopefully we can get this system revving again.
Avatar n tn I had a complete hysterectomy approx 7 ears ago due to stage 4 Endomietriosis. After surgery my doctor started HRT and placed me on Premrin. However, we switched to Estradiol about a year ago due to financial issues. I also take Triamterene for water retention. I am starting to experience some symptoms such as sensations in my breasts (feels like my breasts are full, like my milk was dropping), hot flashes, headaches, loss of libido, anxiety, sudden tears, irritability, a little fatigue.

Avatar n tn I am having horrible issues with bloating from water retention. I am on armour 90 and based on recent labs which I posted before my doc wont change things right now. Does anyone know anything I can try to reduce the bloat? I am drinking tons of lemon water. I stumbled across something that mentioned pedialyte?

1054801 tn?1327951999 Agricultural Foreign Estrogens Agriculture typically uses artificial estrogen compounds to fatten up cattle and chicken quickly. Estrogen also stimulates the retention of water giving a heavier weight and tender meat. Some proponents say that the artificial estrogen compounds disappear from the urine in a matter of days and the animals are then free of artificial hormones. Other opponents say the artificial estrogens are stored in the fat and then eaten by consumers.
Avatar n tn I had hot flashes and night sweats in my twenties and weight gain and water retention. I felt hyper and had palpitations. The weird thing was that after these several months my body "adapted" somehow to the pill and I regained energy and my hair was never more beutiful. My skin even more perfect. I felt good afterwards. But your problem seems to persist. It is all progesterone and estrogen related, with the thyroid, I mean. I quit the pill for the better.
Avatar n tn He was disturbed by the fat distribution/water retention saying it's clearly a problem. I look like an obese woman who had kids and circulation problems - yet, I'm 43, 150lbs, workout - but I've got major cellulite/stretch marks and I feel let down because knowbody knows or is doing anything constructive and everything is slow.
Avatar f tn 50 according to doc The reason my doctor decided to start my on all those meds was that I had been on thyroxine for 10 years with considerable weight gain and water retention and many other hormone deficiencies as a result. She decided I should not waste any more time.

1448748 tn?1312959808 I've always held water and salt well, I have had problems with water retention in the past, and I am never thirsty, I have to force myself to drink fluids I'm obviously not in an adrenal crisis, but something is wrong when all my hormones are low and I feel like this and I've read that pituitary can be diagnosed with my thyroid labs only....
Avatar m tn Stretch the foreskin of the penis and pour water on the stretched part for 15 minutes a day. Nerve endings at the tip of the foreskin will get stimulated, normalizing the nerve pathways or blood circulation. If circumsized, pat perinium with water dripping cloth for 15 minutes a day. You may studey Kundalini yoga, Tantric sex, Taoist yoga, Kegel exercises. is quite comprehensive web site. you may find some technique useful to you. wish you best of luck.
Avatar f tn I do have low progesteeone levels and low Estrogen but E is higher than P causing an E dominance effect. I supplemented with high dose P for almost 2 years but had to stop because it was going down the cortisol pathway. So now now I can't take it, plus each course it started stimulating E more and more. I take a lot of supplements in general... Was taking DIM + CDG to lower E, but like I said it's actually low, but P is "lower". I was using a compounded P cream + oral.
Avatar f tn It was real doctors answering questions and a person aked the same question as you... bout the darkness under the eyes and he said its water retention! I was shocked cause Iv the dark circles under my eyes to!! Now I think I know why!!! sooo now how to get rid of them LOL....
Avatar n tn As I have weaned my body off of the progesterone and stayed only with Estradiol (considered the best choice for estrogen so your body does not resort to making Estrone ... a less safe estrogen than Estradiol..... Estrone is the menopausal body's estrogen that is the by-product of fat which the body will make because our bodies crave Estrogen) along with a little testosterone, I have started to feel whole again. I have also reversed my bone loss and decreased my fatigue.
Avatar n tn [140] We are currently validating our observations in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized crossover trial and evaluating the effects of estradiol on asthma symptoms, pulmonary function, quality of life, and various biochemical markers of airway inflammation." http://www.medscape.
Avatar m tn I had posted this in the "woman's health" forum area and got no comments back at all. That area doesn't seem as active of a community as this one. So I will re-post what I posted there related to my wife's hormone levels. As far as thyroid she is being treated with Armour and just got bumped up to 180 mg (from 165). her FT4 are BELOW range, her FT3 are about 25% to 50% of the range but the range is also wider than most ranges we see here.
567488 tn?1244744266 Good morning! I don't have an appointment today due to the confusion on Saturday. DH is climbing the walls to find out WHEN...I keep telling him I will know when they know. I would think they would give me some kind of schedule too, but they didn't, and when I asked them for info on IVF they said they didn't have any and don't give any out..??..
147426 tn?1317269232 I have horrible pain behind my left eye and a foggy feeling at times. I have creepy crawly feelings all the time and I feel like I cannot tell if water is too hot or too cold sometimes. I feel like I am going to pass out when I get in the heat. I get dizzy when I close my eyes alot now and I have noticed I have been getting car sick alot lately. I cannot even cough without getting dizzy and having ringing in my ears. I have had all normal MRI's , but have had an abnormal Evoked Visual.
Avatar n tn I just turned 44 and am trying for my 4th child. Had my FSH and Estradiol checked and all looks good. Hubby and I have been trying for a few months but no luck. All sites are so negative about "old eggs", but my Dr. says just keep trying. Not planning to use clomid or other meds. Good luck to everyone out there!
