When Your Body Makes Less Estrogen

Postby beingchinmay » Thu Feb 02, 2017 12:45 pm

It has been said that menopause starts the day you get your first menstrual cycle. I don’t know if that’s a hopeful comment or a depressing one, but any way you slice it a woman will have periods for about 30 to 40 years after they first begin, and then they’ll stop. There is still a great deal of research that needs to be done on all the issues surrounding perimenopause (referring to the symptoms taking place in the years before the onset of menopause as estrogen production begins to fall off ), menopause (the actual cessation of the menstrual cycle), and postmenopause (the years after your period has stopped). What is known for certain is that when the body has less estrogen available changes in the appearance of skin,
hair, bone, and other physical manifestations begin to take place.

You can see there are three forms of estrogen: estradiol, estriol and estrone. Low estrogen levels can be experienced by young women from various causes, as well depends on age, symptoms, family history.

Symptoms

Tiredness is one problem related to it. Lack or unusual menstruation can happen. Headaches and bladder infections might occur. Disposition changes which could result in crying, feelings of irritability and depression are also some of the symptoms. Bone loss also happens that results in osteoporosis. Inability to eventually become pregnant can indicate estrogen levels that are low in girls.

Function

Estrogen is generated mainly in the ovaries. The adrenal glands produce some estrogen. Signs for estrogen creation come in the pituitary gland, and amounts change throughout life with respect to the phase of a female 's menstrual cycle.

Conditions

Genetic disease can lead to low estrogen in girls that are younger. Radiation or chemotherapy may also restrict estrogen creation, as well as thyroid disorders.

Other Causes

Other conditions that cause estrogen levels that are low in younger girls contain eating disorders, excessive exercise and little body fat.
Your physician will determine which form of urine or blood test becomes necessary to discover for those who have low estrogen levels. FSH levels also decrease when estrogen levels are low. Chromosomal testing might be undergone by younger girls supposed to have Turner syndrome. The syndrome is caused by abnormality in X chromosomes.
Treatment

Younger girls going through menopause will not be treated the same as elderly women. In most situations, the particular treatment is determined by the inherent cause.
