The main sex hormone basically categorized into Estrogen and Androgen. Both of these hormones are available in males and females with different levels.
In general, the man produces 6-8 mg of testosterone (androgen) per day while the woman produces only 0.5 mg per day, however, the story will be different when talking about estrogen which is much higher in women than men.
What is Estrogen?
Estrogen is a group of steroid compound that serves primarily as female sex hormone. This hormone promotes the development and maintain secondary female sex characteristics such as breast, thickening of the mucous membrane lining of the uterine cavity (endometrium) or in short including vaginal walls and surrounding tissues, and regulate menstrual cycle.
There are three main estrogen, namely estradiol, estrone, and estriol. Of these types, estradiol or E2 defined as the strongest estrogenic activities.
A girl, firstly producing estrogen between age of 8 to 13 years referred as the beginning of puberty and further development of the uterus, vagina, and channel from the ovary to the uterus.
At the time of estrogen reaching higher levels, ovulation takes place for the first time, that is the mature egg out of ovarian and menstrual cycle begins. Of this condition, which is categorized as the woman has matured, estrogen level rises and fall in accordance to menstrual cycle. A very low hormone levels occurs in the early cycle and will recover after a few days post menstruation.
This fluctuation of estrogen levels, furthermore may cause in vaginal dryness but it will recover after a few days of post-menstruation.
In women entering menopause period (perimenopause), however, the level will be declined significantly as the ovary or egg only produces small estrogen, and totally stop when women entering menopause period which is indicated by no more menstruation. On both these phases the vagina start to experience with frequent dryness as the body relies solely on the remaining estrogen or from synthesizing foods that contains phytoestrogen content. These estrogenic activities that are still stimulating the tissue and gland on the vagina to produce fluid to keep it moist. Other impacts of estrogen deficiency such as menopausal symptoms, incontinence urinary and other medical conditions are following accordingly, including dried skin, thin or lose hair, pain and soreness in the joint, weight gain, bleeding gums, eye disorders, weight gain, and many more.
What makes the sex life disturbance is, estrogen deficiency also affects certain atrophic symptoms like thinning vaginal walls making sex becomes pain and very uncomfortable. As estrogen also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the tissue, the tightness and elasticity of vaginal walls also declined accordingly. Furthermore, lower estrogenic activities that is also required to stimulate the production of fibers forming muscle mass making the strength of pelvic muscles declines. That being said, while estrogen deficiency causes vaginal dryness and menopausal symptoms, the loose vaginal walls and weakened vaginal or pelvic floor muscles contraction also come with it.
This is why using general vaginal lubricants do not automatically make sex fun because it's only overcoming painful sex, but the sensitivity of vaginal walls, its tightness and elasticity, and the contraction remain untreated.
Estrogen plays vital roles for many health benefits, including female genital organs and function. For this reason, hormone replacement therapy becomes the best way to cover everything associated with estrogen deficiency.
