Specializes in Family Medicine

Womanly traits : Estrogen is essential for the development of female sexual characteristics, such as wider hips, breasts, increased subcutaneous fat, and development of the eggs and thickening of the lining of the uterus to support a pregnancy. The change in estrogen and Progesterone levels each month determines ovulation and menses as well.
