Varies : The estrogen progeterone ratio is not something anyone would check. Levels change dramatically throughout the cycle so checking this number would not be clinically useful.

Estrogen increase: It would increase her estrogen level, and if dose is high enough or frequent enough, it could alter menses and even act as a contraceptive. If the person is post menopausal, it can prevent bone loss and restore vaginal lubrication and postpone hot flashes and nite sweats. Should only be done with medical supervision and advice.
