Understanding Estrogen Metabolism

As your OB/GYN, I want to make sure that you're informed about your body and how it works. One important topic that we need to talk about is estrogen metabolism.

Estrogen is a hormone that is crucial for female health. It plays a role in reproductive health, bone health, and cardiovascular health. However, not all women metabolize estrogen in the same way. Some women may have a genetic variation that affects how their body breaks down estrogen, which can lead to health problems.

To better understand your body and your risk for certain health conditions, it's important to know how your body metabolizes estrogen. This can be done through simple urine, blood, and saliva testing that we can perform in our office.

By testing your estrogen metabolism, we can identify any issues and develop a personalized treatment plan that works best for you. This can help improve your overall health and well-being.

If you're interested in learning more about estrogen metabolism and how it relates to your health, please don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with us. We're here to help you live your healthiest life possible.

Thank you for trusting us with your healthcare needs.
