The Female Powerhouse:
Estrogen is the most important hormone for women and plays an essential role in the health and youthful aging for women. Estrogen levels remain relatively the same during the first 25 years of woman’s life, but then gradually start decreasing over time. As a woman’s body changes she goes through many physical and psychological changes.
Estrogen Levels Start Fluctuating:
In women, the symptoms of hormonal imbalance often first appear during perimenopause when the ratio of Estrogen to Progesterone begins to fluctuate and periods become irregular. During this transition period and then into menopause, when over a year has passed without a period, then the symptoms of hormone imbalance gradually become worse.
