Oestrogen Dominance or Low Progesterone results in mood swings, migraines, fat gain in the hips and thighs whereas low Oestrogen or fluctuations can trigger hot flushes, night sweats, palpitations, foggy thinking, memory lapse or vaginal discharge. Low naturally occurring testosterone leads to decreases in bone or muscle mass, metabolism, energy, strength, stamina, exercise and libido. Heightened Cortisol results in insomnia, anxiety, sugar cravings, feeling tired but wired and increase of stomach fat, whereas low cortisol caused chronic fatigue, low energy, food and sugar cravings, poor exercise tolerance or recovery and low immune reserves. Changes in oestrogen and progesterone levels can impact neurotransmitter levels. For instance, a drop in oestrogen can result in a drop in serotonin and therefore can affect your mental health. Changes in oestrogen levels can lead to thyroid symptoms like slowed metabolism and always feeling cold.
