Men are often surprised to learn they have the ‘female’ hormone estrogen or estrodiol. The truth is that both men and women have different levels of testosterone and estrogen in their bodies. The key is to keep them at appropriate levels and in balance.
For some men the testosterone levels can decline, commonly referred to as Low T. Some of these same men can also have too much estrogen and benefit from an anti-estrogen.
Symptoms of too much estrogen in men can be being overly emotional, breast tenderness, or enlargement.
