Question to you-why: Estrogens - these work in different ways - and usually get converted in an orderly fashion accordingly from Cholesterol through the Steroid Tree - and usually an a one way, not bi lateral (two way) direction. So the important part is why are you trying to accomplish - that is the real question.
