    Female hormone help

    So which hormone is the one that causes heavy bleeding? Estrogen or Progesterone? Also what do these numbers represent? Is this within normal ranges or do they indicate Estrogen dominance? Thank you! The ratio of estradiol to progesterone is 227 pmol/L estradiol to <0.5 nmol/L progesterone
