Queen of Female Hormones

Estrogen is the essence of femininity, guiding your journey from girlhood to womanhood. It's the gentle but powerful force that bestows the rhythm of your menstrual cycle, the glow of vibrant skin, and the resilience of a healthy heart and bones. With its various forms, estrogen's harmony is key—too much or too little, and it's like a symphony out of tune, but when balanced, it's the melody of well-being. 

Estrogen is primarily made from the ovaries.
Main Types of Estrogen
Let's delve a bit deeper into these three forms of estrogen, which play vital roles at different stages of a woman's life.

Estrone (E1)

Post-menopause, estrone, produced by the adrenal glands and fat tissues, is the main estrogen. It's crucial for bone and heart health but also raises the risk of certain cancers, emphasizing the importance of hormonal balance monitoring in postmenopausal women.

Estradiol (E2)

Estradiol, the primary estrogen in childbearing women, is vital for regulating the menstrual cycle, fertility, and overall health. Produced by the ovaries, its levels vary, affecting mood and energy. Understanding estradiol is key in addressing menstrual and hormonal issues.

Estriol (E3)

During pregnancy, estriol is the main estrogen, produced by the placenta. It's essential for fetal growth and preparing for childbirth. Despite being the weakest estrogen, its increased levels during pregnancy are crucial for both mother and baby's health.
