Has anyone ever used a supplement that helps balance your hormones? I have every symptom of high estrogen. I can't stand the moodiness, cramps, foggy, tired feeling. Even my antidepressant isn't working like it used to. I want my doctor to test my hormones but Idk if she'll actually listen. If she doesn't, I want to try something OTC while I try to find a new doctor.

Best bet, change your diet to all organic, particularly dairy and meat.  Increase your food sources of all B vitamins, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, Vitamin C and Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.  Decrease sodium and caffeine intake, and increase your activity level.

I have changed my diet and I work out regularly. I still feel horrible.

Quoting corticosteroid:

High estrogen is a tough one to treat OTC.  And by the by?  Your doctor doesn't determine what blood tests you get, you do.  If you want your hormone levels tested, tell your doctor that you want you hormone levels tested, and you're not taking no for an answer because it's your body and your money.

I guess I need to be more forceful. I have endometriosis and have a lot of pain from it. I don't really feel like my doctor really listens to my concerns though.

I used to take chastity-berry to help regulate my hormones.
Look into things that mess with your hormones. I found out that non-stick pots and pans and other things can have an effect on your hormones

DIM has been a lifesaver for me! My face cleared up in a week. I also take an herbal supplement called Womens Best Friend and bio identical progesterone. I started DIM last and it was just what I needed to help those last symptoms.
