Where You Find Estrogen

Although every medication, including birth control and hormone replacement therapy, has pros and cons, not every woman is at risk for estrogen-­‐related blood clots. Yet for some women, certain variables can place them at higher risk. Women with the greatest risk are those who have already had a blood clot or pulmonary embolism in the past, or have a genetic factor that increases the risk of blood clots, Dr. Goldberg says. Other risk factors for clots include being a smoker, inactive, or overweight. So how do you know what products contain estrogen? First, check the label on contraceptives and hormonal therapies. If you spot words like estrogen, estradiol, or conjugated estrogen, the product contains estrogen, says gynecologist Kathy C. Maupin, MD, in St. Louis, Missouri, founder of BioBalance Health, and author of The Secret Female Hormone.
