No: Estroven contains soy plant phytoestrogens which are weak (very weak) activators of the estrogen receptor. The word "estrogen" commonly refers to 17-beta-estradiol, the most potent of the estrogen receptor stimulators found in the natural human circulation.

No: Estroven does not contain human estrogen. It does contain some isoflavones, which is a plant based estrogen. Although plant Estrogens may be helpful in treating some mild menopausal symptoms, that are chemically different.
