Estrogen is a hormone that is made by all of our bodies – both women and men. It plays and important role in your reproductive system and is also credited for helping to protect your bones, and even helping your skin heal from bruising. As you age, and especially when a woman reaches menopause, your body produces less estrogen and women may begin to wonder if they should consider taking estrogen replacement therapy. This is an extremely important decision for women, as estrogen replacement therapy can have both positive benefits as well as some potential side effects. St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center can help you weigh your options and come up with a plan that works for you.
