A: The most common symptoms associated with estrogen deficiency are hot flashes and night sweats. There can be other symptoms as well, such as insomnia, vaginal dryness, moodiness and depression, as well as many other symptoms. For example, some women may complain of forgetfulness, lack of being able to focus and “mental fogginess”. If these symptoms are caused by a decreased output of estrogen from the ovaries, then taking the correct dose of hormone replacement usually alleviates these bothersome symptoms altogether.
