The Estrogen Controversy

There is a controversy about estrogen and it’s definitely one that has been brewing for quite some time; whether or not estrogen actually can actually increase the risk of a whole wide variety of problems.  The thing about estrogen is it was commonly given to women at the time of menopause because it clearly helped with things such as hot flashes.  But studies have shown that there are problems associated with breast cancer, heart disease, and other issues.  Estrogen may not be the answer; in some women it is, but in some women it should be avoided.  You need to talk about estrogen with your doctor.   
We always welcome your comments.
