Low Estrogen: Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment

What Is Estrogen?

Estrogen is a group of hormones that the body naturally produces. While it can be found in both men and women, estrogen plays a key part in the normal reproductive and sexual functions of females. In addition, it is important for the bones, skin, breast, blood vessels, heart, urinary tract, brain, pelvic muscles, and mucous membranes. The ovaries release most of this hormone, but the fat cells and adrenal glands are also responsible for small amounts. [1]
