Estrogen Deficiency

In women over age 40, estrogen levels will significantly decline due to approaching menopause, which is medically known as perimenopause. During this time of transition, a woman’s ovaries will still produce estrogen, however, in smaller amounts. By the time that estrogen production completely stopped, a woman has already reached menopause. This age-related decline in estrogen levels can lead to debilitating signs and symptoms such as:

  • Breast tenderness
  • Brittle bones
  • Cognitive impairment (memory issues, difficulty concentrating, and thinking problems)
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Frequently missed periods (amenorrhea)
  • Hot flashes
  • Low libido
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Painful intercourse
  • Thin, dry, or wrinkled skin

In men, low estrogen levels can also lead to the following signs and symptoms:

  • Anxiety
  • Bone loss
  • Depression
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Joint pains
  • Fat accumulation
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Oversleeping or sleeping difficulties
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Water retention
  • Hot flashes

Aside from the natural process of aging, certain medical conditions, lifestyle choices, and processes can lead to estrogen deficiency. These include:

  • An underactive pituitary gland
  • Anorexia nervosa
  • Breastfeeding
  • Certain medications, such as clomiphene
  • Childbirth
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Fat and calorie restriction
  • Genetics
  • Ovarian failure
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pregnancy failure
  • Strenuous exercise or training
  • Toxins
  • Turner syndrome
