Hot flashes.: You probably have a hormone imbalance. Call your doctor and discuss the balancing of your hormones. This is complex and needs frequent medical visits.

Is estrogen higher or lower during pregnancy?

Dr. Cayce Jehaimi

High: Preganancy is a state of hyper estrogenism or high estrogen state, mainly due to increase estrogen production by the placenta (called estriol). The rise of estrogen leads to various physiological changes in the women's body including lowered tone of the esophageal sphincter, hence why heart burn sensation is common in the early stages of pregnancy. Good luck.

Totally different: Progesterone and estrogen are quite distinct steroidal molecules secreted by the ovary as well as other entities in the body. The functions of these hormones are quite distinct.

Weight gain etc: Most of my patients on Premarin (conjugated estrogens) do quite well as the benefits of taking it far out weigh the risks. Weight gain, bloating, breast , uterus cancer, blood clot , ht attack, stoke. These are all very uncommon in a healthy person taking this medication. If you have a uterus you will need to take Progesterone also but if you don't then u can just take estrogen which is safer.
