progesterone, Estrogen, Paranoia, Psychosis
(Belgrave, Australia )
I'm wondering what are your thoughts about the ideas I see mentioned that low levels of estrogen can cause psychosis, paranoia, schizophrenia? if you type 'estrogen psychosis' into a search engine, it brings up quite a few different references to studies showing that low levels of estrogen can cause these issues. We know that low progesterone can cause the same problems. Do you think that a combo of low levels of both could be the worst case trigger for these issues? But if that was the case, wouldn't we be seeing an epidemic of women with these problems however many years after menopause has allowed their levels to drop? Is that even possible in our xenoesreogenically saturated world anyway?
I'm confused and would value your thoughts :-)
