Estradiol acts mainly as a growth hormone for the reproductive structures in females. In conjunction with progesterone, estradiol is involved with the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. After menopause, these levels can decline. Low levels can cause diminished sex drive. Estradiol has significant role in the maintaining healthy bone growth and improved blood flow in coronary arteries in addition to offering neuroprotective effects. Estrogen have been know to contribute to risk of breast cancer as well as some non cancerous conditions like endometriosis and uterine fibroids.
Progesterone helps to maintain normal menstrual cycles as well as early pregnancy. This hormone is responsible for the endometrium or lining of the uterus. Low progesterone levels can cause conception problems and abnormal cycles. These low levels are also associated with decrease sex drive and weight gain. High levels have been related to mood swings, bloating and breast tenderness. In menopause, progesterone production significantly drops.
The ideal ratio of progesterone/estradiol ranges from 100-500 in premenopausal women, and 150-1000 in pre and postmenopausal women supplementing with oral or topical progesterone. Exceptions are postmenopausal women with low estrogen levels and women on synthetic hormones.
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
In women, FSH is responsible for the growth of ovarian follicles, which produce estrogens and progesterone to maintain a normal menstrual cycle. High FSH levels may indicate a loss of ovarian function and the possible onset of menopause. An increase FSH may also indicate decline fertility. Low FSH levels may indicate a women not producing eggs.
