Estrogen and Progesterone are not the only hormones to blame for these symptoms. For example, the stress hormone cortisol also plays a role in metabolic and immune function alterations. The thyroid, adrenals, and ovaries must all be in balance and if one is over or under-producing it will naturally cause changes in the other endocrine glands.
