Thyroid and low estrogen levels
by Jay Parmar
I am hypothyroid and have just been told I am entering perimenopausal stage. My estrogen levels are very low and my GP suggested HRT but I have refused seeking a natural treatment instead.
This is all very new to me and I want to ensure that I make the right choice. I have noticed weight gain, abdominal bloating, irregular periods and sometimes feel dizzy. Will using progesterone cream help to reduce weight gain and abdominal bloating? I need to be careful here because estrogen dominance can affect thyroid gland from functioning properly. I would welcome any advice. I am taking Evening primrose oil and good multi vits.
