Low Estrogen


      Low estrogen is a normal part of aging, but at a younger age, low levels may impact your mood, metabolism and/or menstrual cycle. Low estrogen may produce menopause-like symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal and skin dryness and brain fog. Low levels may also impact metabolism leading to weight gain and/or high blood sugar. Stress may also be involved as the stress hormone, cortisol, may cause a decrease in estrogen.
