Estrogen and inflammation

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen and inflammation


Avatar m tn Since your Pap was LSIL you should have a repeat Pap in 6 to 12 months. An abnormal Pap can be caused by inflammation and minor infection. The fact that you stopped the pill should not cause the abnormal result unless you are menopausal and there are some changes at menopause that can cause the Pap to appear abnormal but it is really normal for that age group. In this case they often prescribe a vaginal estroegen cream.

Avatar f tn Pain relievers, such as aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with frozen shoulder. Stretching exercises will help maintain as much mobility in your shoulder as possible. Injecting corticosteroids into your shoulder joint may help decrease pain and improve shoulder mobility. However the night sweats and low sex drive may be attributed to low estrogens and HRT may help with this. The answer is based on information provided.

Avatar f tn Can stress cause the vagina to itch and legs to itch and burn if there is no present infections of any kind?
Avatar n tn By aiding healthy hormone metabolism and assisting the body to recognize and eliminate stressed cells, we can reduce generalized inflammation and slow the progress of aging-related disorders. DIM (Diindolylmethane) is a natural antioxidant and phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables, and research has shown it to have powerful anti-inflammatory activity. DIM is an indole that is highly insoluble. To be absorbed, pure DIM must be microencapsulated.
Avatar n tn Hello, Thick and heavy white vaginal discharge can be due to inflammation or congestion of the vaginal mucosa.It can occur estrogen imbalance,vaginal infections or STD’s.I would suggest you to consult a gynecologist and get a pelvic examination and swab culture done to confirm the diagnosis.Treatment depends on the confirmation of diagnosis. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar m tn vitamin D actually gets converted into a steroid hormone (other steroid hormones include estrogen and testosterone). As a steroid hormone, it regulates over 1,000 different physiological processes, and controls around 5 percent of the human genome. Dr. Michael Holick, who's a leader in vitamin D research, thinks it may even control twice that amount of genes.
Avatar m tn In Autoimmune thyroid , the thyroid is inflamed from the antibodies and you are at risk for more body inflammation in other areas. The thyroid level of inflammation gets re-disturbed with other hormone imbalances as it can no longer self adjust. The hormone output and free T levels are now regulated by the hormone replacement meds. Like a car that no longer has an adjustable gas pedal for hills, its now one speed.
Avatar m tn So, i joined both symptoms (Bier spots and gynecomastia) and all i could find was a liver issue, because bier spots are commonly caused by liver diseases and gynecomastia is caused by high estrogen (caused by liver disease). Now, when estrogen rises, usually a decrease in the libido is observed, which is not my case because i have sex almost daily, with no erectile disfunctions whatsoever. Also, with liver diseases comes yellow skin, dark urine, etc etc, and i dont have those symptoms at all.
Avatar m tn Hormones generally work in concert. Testosterone and estrogen therefore would be affected by these spikes and dips in hormones, thus contributing to acne. Acne is generally considered an inflammatory disorder (depending on type, of course) and whatever you eat is a good place to find the cause. Also, caffeine is a diuretic, meaning you will get more dehydrated the more your drink it.
Avatar f tn I don't have the labs handy for the 100mcg synthroid and 60mg NTH, but my TSH was .006 and both my FT4 and FT3 were at the high end. My RT3 was 478, which is the reason I don't feel hyper because the meds aren't actually working. I don't feel anxious or shakey and my heart rate is never over 80 and my basal temp is around 97.7 (orally), 96.6 (armpit).
Avatar m tn It may be due to lack of foreplay before intercourse, medical conditions such as vaginusmus and pelvic pain, vaginitis, anxiety regarding performance, low estrogen levels, inflammation and infections of vagina, menopause and drugs such as narcotics, tranquilizers, nicotine, alcohol and sedatives. I feel that pelvic examination by a gynecologist along with cervical swabs and hormone studies are necessary.

Avatar n tn If you have ASC-US and are near or past menopause, your health care provider may prescribe estrogen cream. If the cell changes are caused by low hormone levels, applying estrogen cream will make them go away." There is some good info on some .gov sites about pap smears, HPV, and cervical cancer. Did the colposcopy done before the LEEP show a worse case of dysplasia since a LEEP is not typically done for mild dysplasia?
Avatar f tn Hi, Urethritis or swelling and inflammation of the urethra may be caused by bacteria or a virus as well as injury, sensitivity to the chemicals used in spermicides or contraceptive jellies, creams, or foams. The risk increases if you are in the reproductive years, or history of sexually transmitted diseases.

Avatar n tn Women and Hepatitis--Gender Influences the Way Hepatitis Acts on the Human Body." [Can be ordered directly from] St. John points out that estrogens and progesterone "are not only metabolized by the liver, they are also inactivated or conjugated there. Conjugated estrogens are secreted into the bile." Because a damaged liver has more difficulty in clearing these substances, menstrual difficulties can be worse for those of us with HCV. St.
Avatar f tn It can also be due to heart problems, especially if you feel suffocated at night. Menopause is also a known cause so get FSH, LH, estrogen and progesterone level assessed. The best thing would be to consult a general practitioner or PCP and try and assess what is the cause of your problem. Then proper referral for concerned specialist can take things further and get you proper treatment. Take care!
Avatar f tn So I know that those two hormones (seratonin and estrogen) are off. So I go to the doctor and they ran a blood test finding that my thyroid is overactive. My doc also had me do an ultrasound and found that my thyroid is "inflamed." Because of my nervousness at the doctor's, my heart races, and she knows this, yet she prescribed me beta-blockers, which I find absolutely ridiculous.

Avatar f tn My thyroid testing came back normal but my thyroid showed inflammation. I had my female hormones like progesterone and estrogen checked through saliva testing. This is the best kind of testing to get. It was found that I had low progesterone so, I was put on a compounded progesterone cream. With in 3 months I noticed my periods being more regular and less painful. Changing my diet and adding hormones didn't fix everything. I was still a terrible mess.
