This blog is #11 in a series of blogs in the form of questions or statements about a health issue and answers. These are in the typical format used when doctors take tests. 

Question #11

Which is not associated with estrogen dominance, a driver of uterine fibroid growth?

  1. Multiparity. 
  2. Carbohydrate intolerance.
  3. Intestinal dysbiosis (too many bad bacteria and not enough good bacteria in the gut).
  4. Perimenopause.

That’s correct! #1.

While insulin resistance, intestinal dysbiosis, and perimenopause are all associated with elevated estrogen levels, multiparity (having many pregnancies) does not indicate high estrogen levels.

My Vive. Remember that estrogen dominance is a big driver of autoimmune disease as well. One of the reasons why women get more autoimmune diseases than men.

Are you a woman with uterine fibroids, or other signs of estrogen dominance, such as those listed below:

  • heavy flows
  • bad menstrual cramps
  • PMS
  • ovarian cysts
  • fibrocystic breast disease
  • endometriosis
  • infertility
  • anxiety
  • insomnia

If so, now is the time to fix the hormone imbalance and make these issues go away. 

By doing this in the right way, you will also be helping to prevent yourself from getting autoimmune diseases in the future.
