    If there is an imbalance in the women’s body hormones, the first and foremost organ to get affected is the uterus. Excessive Estrogen causes the uterus to grow, and without the monthly balancing effect of progesterone, it doesn’t get any accurate signals to stop the growth. In some women this leads to an enlarged uterus that presses on other organs, such as the bladder, and at times on the digestive system, and generally causes discomfort and heavy menstrual bleeding. In other cases Estrogen dominance results in fibroids, which are tough, fibrous, non-cancerous lumps that grow in the uterus. Women suffering from such problem will experience a host of symptoms either individually or in combination. It includes breakthrough bleeding, heavy periods, cramping, pain, feeling bloated, pressure, fullness, or pain in the abdomen, dull ache in the lower back and thighs,and problems in urination. Although these are benign but can affect everyday routine tasks. Do not neglect or avoid the symptoms if you are experiencing any. This would only complicate the issue and could lead to uterine cancer. But also do remember that the symptoms are overlapping and could be due to other gynaec problems too. Regular gynec check ups and timely treatment can help you overcome this problem quite easily.
