Estrogens. Why can the “most female” hormones be raised or lowered?

Estrogens are the most female hormones, although men also have them. In fact, this is not one hormone, but the collective name of sex hormones that are similar in characteristics. First of all, speaking about estrogens, a three is distinguished: estradiol, estriol and estrone. They are produced by the ovaries (testicles in men), adrenal glands, adipose tissue, skin and other tissues. Interestingly, in order to get a “female” estrogen, you need a male hormone – testosterone. This “conversion” is possible due to the work of the aromatase enzyme. To make it easier to imagine how this happens, then imagine the route of the hormonal “train”. It starts moving from the testosterone station, moving to the next estrone, then estradiol, and the final stop is estriol.

An elegant and charming estrogenic Eva is created from the testosterone rib of Adam.
