No.: Progesterone cream won't help. Prescription or over the counter. Avoid all soy products! having excess estrogen is most common because of being over weight. Fat cells store estrogen. A lifestyle change of cutting out sugar and grains will help balance your hormones, may help you lose weight, decrease overall inflammation and help optimize your health! read www.Paleoforwomen.Com.

How do you know that: What makes you think that you have "excess estrogen" in your body? If indeed you do that can be caused by: estrogen secreting tumors in your ovaries missing ovulations! estrogen producing abnormalities elsewhere in your body!, etc.
