High level of estrogen hormones

The hyperestrogenism is an ovarian dysfunction which can be cause by a lesion or cause by secretions or can have a functional metabolic cause.

The organ-lesion hyperestrogenism is characterized by hormones secretion in very big doses with the lost of the cyclic rhythm and acute character. It is due to cystic ovaries, total hyperplasia or ovarian tumors.

The functional and metabolic hyperestrogenism is most frequently due to an estrogen and progesterone secretion disorder or of their metabolisation (chronic hepatitis, chronic cirrhosis). A particular form is represented by iatrogenic hyperestrogenism which appeared because big doses or uncontrolled doses of estrogen were administered.

The symptoms vary and depend of the sensibility of the estrogenic receptors:

  • disorders of the menstrual cycle/period;
