Fluctuating Estrogen Levels Causes Anxiety in Women

For many years it has been shown that hormonal treatment with estrogen can improve anxiety levels in women.

We have also shown that effective levels of estrogen are important. Which is why some blood testing while getting treatment is important.

Recently a new publication by Dr. Pauline Maki has shown that more stable levels of estrogen are correlated with better mental health and less anxiety.

One of the reasons to select transdermal or implants for treatment of menopause is to increase the stability of the levels.

Too much fluctuation of the levels of the estrogen when treating menopause is correlated with increased levels of anxiety.

If your physician has not done any testing, you may be a candidate for testing your levels, and trying a different route of delivery for your hormone therapy.
