Are your estrogen levels too high?
Some people confuse high estrogen levels and estrogen dominance, but it isn’t quite the same thing. You can have estrogen dominance because of low progesterone levels, not just high estrogen levels.
Take a look at the symptoms of high estrogen levels to see if it’s something you should test. If you do have higher than needed levels, there are some things to try to lower estrogen levels and ease symptoms.
Common Symptoms of High Estrogen
HRV may be highest during the menstrual phase

Estrogen is the lowest during the menstrual phase, so if estrogen decreases HRV, women may find they have a higher HRV during their menstrual phase.
