Possible gynae problems associated with oestrogen dominance include lumpy, painful, tender, swollen breasts; heavy and/or irregular periods; an abnormally thickened womb lining (endometrial hyperplasia); a vaginal discharge; polycystic ovary syndrome; infertility; repeated miscarriage; fibroids; endometriosis; cervical erosion; post-menopausal bleeding; and womb, ovary and breast cancer. It may also show up with weight gain, bloating, nausea and irritability.

Home remedies for the treatment of Oestrogen Dominance

Dietary changes - Eat more fibre and less fat (especially saturated), as this reduces the numbers of those gut bacteria that produce beta-glucuronidase, an enzyme which enables oestrogen to be reabsorbed from the bowel to the blood.

Eat more foods rich in B vitamins, as these also encourage the liver to break down surplus oestrogen. Include yoghurt, as lactobacilli can help to lower the oestrogen level. Eat beans, peas, lentils, onions and garlic; all of which are high in methionine, a sulphur-containing amino acid that helps the liver to break down excess oestradiol (the most potent form of a woman's oestrogen) into oestriol (a weaker sort).

Drink only moderate amounts of alcohol; as little as three to six glasses of wine a week, for example, is enough to raise the oestrogen level.

Healthy weight maintenance - This is important, as oestrogen is produced in body fat by the action of an enzyme (aromatase) on testosterone. Too much fat around your middle is particularly likely to raise your oestrogen level. However, it is also important to remember that being too slim prevents ovulation.

Tests and investigations for Oestrogen Dominance

These depend on your symptoms, since oestrogen deficiency can be associated with so many gynae problems .
