Testosterone and oestrogen

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone and oestrogen


Avatar m tn If this goes on for long enough a man (yes, and a woman) can become oestrogen Dominant (too much oestrogen relative to Testosterone). By lowering stress and thus.. reducing cortisol, my progesterone levels should return to normal levels. If that is the case then why wouldn't it counter the extra oestrogen in my body automatically and remove the effects of oestrogen dominance? Why would I continue to suffer the symptoms of oestrogen dominance?
Avatar f tn My Doctor has diagnosed me with reverse T3 and oestrogen dominence and has put me on progesterone to balance the oestrogen, t3 for my thyroid and Dhea (as I am low in DHEA and Testosterone) as he says it will be used, and if necessary by body will convert what it needs to Testosterone. However I just read an article which states Hashi patients often convert DHEA to Oestrogen which exasperates Oestrogen dominence. Has anyone ever heard of this?
1139187 tn?1355706647 your body turns progesterone into testosterone. you get the woman hormone oestrogen from meats like beef and milk and tap water which will give you the wrong hormones. all i say is check it out it has worked for me. dont always trust the doctors trust the biochemists they know you down to the atoms the doctors are only good for breaks and cuts. most doctors put your symptoms into a pc and the pc tells them what drug to give you.
Avatar m tn But long term use of testosterone and other steroids have transient effects and there is no scientific evidence that performance is enhanced. There is abuse liability so I would suggest you to follow up with a physician or endocrinologist for case to case prescriptions. Take care!
Avatar n tn form esters with bacteria in uric acid and sterates and oliec acids this causes mis- transcription in oestrogen dominated cells this is why doctors perscribe triptorelyn to reduce both oestrogen and testosterone this reduces the fibroids but upsets all the bodies hormones and can be very unpleasent even causing minor fits etc, do not worry though every thing usually turns out ok; but the fibroids will still return slowly until you reach menopause at the approx age of arond 50 usually.
Avatar f tn Female acne patients will also benefit from taking a combined oral contraceptive pill such as Yasmin or diane35 since the oestrogen and anti-androgens these contain block the effects of acne-causing male hormones (like testosterone) on the skin. If these medicines have resulted in failure or relapse after long term use, you may be a candidate for oral Isotretinoin (Roaccutane) the strongest acne medicine available.
Avatar n tn It is thought that the psychological effects of semen are a result of its complex chemical make-up including several mood-altering hormones (testosterone, oestrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, prolactin and several different prostaglandins).
Avatar f tn There is a link between low oestrogen and urinary infections as well for many women and I use oestrogen cream for vaginal prolapse, and for urine infections as well. The oestrogen receptors in the bladder uptake the oestrogen through the vagina which keeps the lining of the bladder and gag layer thicker as well as helps the vaginal tissues as well. Your GP needs to assess if vaginal oestrogen is safe for you to use and they can prescribe it.
Avatar f tn So my doc is taking me off birth control pills and putting me on a bioidentical cream that has estrogen, testosterone and, progesterone. She also has me taking 5mg DHEA as well as glutamine for my gut and Rejuvamax to increase my growth hormone which was also low and Dim to lower the bad estrogen. I'm also taking Dim to lower the bad estrogen. She said as low as all my levels were, it will take 3-4 months to start feeling a difference.
Avatar f tn I think I am on the best dose of Thyroid but I have no sexual drive. I spoke to a gyno about this several years ago. Testosterone cannot be got. "It is usual that women at this age do not have drive". I got no help. I have a minimal persistent dose of oestrogen and some progesterone at intervals of three months.
1008666 tn?1250767215 It did, he said that the test had shown that my Oestrogen levels were ridiculously low and for some reason the Oestrogen wasn’t staying in my system. I recall that he said that my liver must be in excellent condition because it was draining the Oestrogen straight out but to be honest I should have asked more questions about why this was happening but didn’t think at the time. I just don’t understand any of it.
Avatar f tn The pituitary gland produces and stores various hormones, including the sex hormones, luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). In men, LH causes the testes to produce testosterone. FSH and testosterone cause the production of sperm by the testes. In women, FSH and LH cause the production of oestrogen by the ovaries and help control the menstrual cycle.
Avatar n tn As zouzi indicated, these two drugs are very similar in effectiveness, and there is some evidence that they both are superioir in some ways to a third AI, Aromisin: "December 14, 2009 (San Antonio, Texas) — New results coming from 2 mature trials with exemestane (Aromasin, Pfizer) suggest that this aromatase inhibitor differs slightly from the other 2 available products, letrozole (Femara, Novartis) and anastrozole (Arimidex, AstraZeneca).
1123241 tn?1259585626 Do you have any other symptoms - I would go and ask for some hormone testing, LH, FSH, Progesterone, Oestrogen, testosterone, especially if your actively ttc. but for health reasons you shouldnt go longer then 3 months without a period, you should be perscribed something like provera (progesterone) to enduce AF every 3 months... maybe she just needs good ol' kick start?
Avatar f tn Estrogen is responsible for keeping our vaginal tissues healthy and strong. But we need testosterone for our sexual beings. Testosterone is responsible for getting back or not losing our sexual desire, give us the ability to lubricate and orgasm. I use bioidentical hormones of estrogen and testosterone. You do NOT have to take pills, there are other options. These come in patches, gels, creams, troches and pellets. Some women swear by creams and patches. I sweare by the pellets.
Avatar n tn I had testosterone, done a year ago and it was normal. dhea at same time. low-ish. oestrogen was is quite how. now sky-high (out of ref range). progesterone high-normal (I was surprised). I know that oestrogen can interfere with thyroid. I'm adapting my diet still further to try and address the oestrogen. (no fun for me). I'm sounding a bit negative, I notice. I'm looking into agnus castus, etc. maybe extra progesterone? I don't know.
231441 tn?1333892766 Anyway she prescribed an oestrogen cream, but I checked the containdications and breastfeeding is contraindicated. I am still breastfeeding and not ready to stop so I can't take that. Anyway, why prescribe an oestrogen cream for something that is just a nervous condition. Does this sound right? I am not feeling good about all of this. Don't know where else to post this or where to get advice or what?
519035 tn?1348275773 However she went to a Gyno for a Testosterone implant (as she was told this would help) and they accidently put in Oestrogen (slow release into the stomach fat which should last 9 odd months). She had horrific periods (she is 60 and has been post menopausal for years) and mood swings, painfull breasts, heart palpitations etc. In deperation I went on line and read that you need Progesterone to balance Oestrogen.
Avatar n tn Providing you are not overweight or a heavy smoker, discuss taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill such as Diane35 (oestrogen and cyproterone acetate) with your doctor. Some women also find Yasmin helpful as it is not based on testosterone. Avoid the progesterone-only mini pill or Depot shot as these can make your skin worse. Eloise.
Avatar f tn I had a hysterectomy because of medical issues and both my ovaries were removed. My surgery was over a yr ago. I am still at 110lbs . I was put on HRT patch the day after and have had no issues. I feel great and don't regret having one. Now I did stay active and returned to work 2 weeks after having it.
161647 tn?1280608163 However,at menopause, the ovaries no longer respond to the stimulation from the Fsh and Lh so as to produce oestrogen and progesterone. In that case the inhibitory action they exert is lost so the body continue to produce both Fsh and Lh in high amount and that is responsible for the hot flashes which women in menopause experience .however, the little estrogen you still see are not actually produce by the ovaries but come from pheripheral tissues eg fat and skin .
Avatar f tn After menopause women produce less oestrogen, a hormone that helps keep the lining of the bladder and urethra healthy. With less oestrogen, these tissues may deteriorate, which can aggravate incontinence. There are several methods to treat the same like bladder training, scheduled/timed toilet trips, fluid management (avoiding excessive consumption of fluid later in the evening & avoiding coffee etc).Pelvic floor muscle exercises also facilitate the same.
666357 tn?1225318814 i just got a cold and i've found that my face seems more blotchy and i'm breaking out. is this normal? is there anything i can do?
666357 tn?1225318814 Talk to your doctor about switching to a birth control pill called Diane35 or Dianette. It contains an oestrogen and an anti-androgen to block the effects of androgens on your skin. Androgens are the hormones responsible for stimulating the grease-glands in your skin. If you have high levels of androgens or are particularly sensitive to their effects you may get acne. Eloise.
