Not good: The effects of estrogen can also become negative when there is too much of these hormones in the body. Such a situation is believed to greatly increase a woman’s chances of both endometrial cancer and breast cancer. Additionally a woman may suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding, migraines and depression. If the situation is not corrected there is also the possibility of a woman becoming infertile.
