Hi, I am 38 years of age and my estrogen level is in the low low 20's, my doctor thinks that I may be going through early menopause but I am not sure. I have a swollen pubic area (not sore and urination is normal) but also have excessive sweat both at night and during the day, the sweat often leaves my underwear quiet damp. I am generally not feeling very well and it seems as though my immune system is non-existent. Please give me some possible causes and what might help?

Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out.

The symptoms of excessive sweating especially the night sweats is commonly seen in perimenopause (period during the beginning of the menopause). During this period, there’s a lowering of the estrogen levels.

There’re drugs to take care of these symptoms. You should consult a gynecologist and start with hormone replacement therapy.

You can also take Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators like Femarelle which is derived from a botanical source (Phytoserms) or phytoestrogens which have an estrogenic effect on the body and therefore create a moderated estrogenic effect.

I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
