Over the course of the next few weeks I’m going to share with you everything you should know about sex hormones beyond the world of pregnancy in a super simple way that anyone could understand it. I’m calling the series The Hormone List, because, well… I’m going to reel off some interesting facts much like reading a list (genius, I know). First up? Oestrogen.
Where is it made? Ovaries, testes, placenta, adrenal glands and fat tissue (yup, your fat makes it too!)
Where are oestrogen receptors found? ER alpha is found in the central nervous system aka brain, cardiovascular system aka heart, uterus, ovaries, breast tissue, bone tissue and even your liver (at this point, I’m thinking why do we even call them sex hormones? Clearly, they do so much more than support baby making). ER beta is also found in the brain, cardiovascular system, bone, uterus, ovaries, breast tissue and even our gut!
