how come a woman who has had a hysterectomy and only takes estrogen replacement, doesn't become estrogen dominant without the progesterone?

Because the theory: Is flawed. Estrogen dominance is a theory about a metabolic state where the level of estrogen outweighs the level of Progesterone in the body. This is said to be caused by a decrease in Progesterone without a subsequent decrease in estrogen. The theory is popular among natural health practitioners, but is generally not recognized by mainstream medicine. It's another internet scam.
