Symptoms of estrogen imbalance

This would show up as pain or even bleeding with intercourse, excessive vaginal tightness, failure of vaginal incisions to heal, vaginal or labial itching and pain (especially upon washing with soaps), multiple vaginal infections like yeast or repeated urinary tract infections, sensations of urinary tract infection without bacterial growth, and weakening of genitourinary tissues leading to incontinence (involuntary leaking of urine, especially with "urge," laughing or sneezing) or prolapse ("falling").

Low estrogen affects the skin all over the body.

You may notice extreme dryness and itching that is poorly relieved by moisturizers and other cosmetic approaches.

An especially odd effect, and one that crosses over into neurological realms, is called formication, described as feeling as though ants are crawling around under your skin.

This may not affect the entire body, but it is a troubling feeling and difficult to relieve with anything other than the proper level of estrogen.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
