A year gone by..

So, my dear readers "JOURNAL OF A NAIJA BABE" is a year old today!!!!


That means the baby babbles are clearer and the baby is beginning to walk...
Today I choose to remember my first comment and my first member "NAIJAMUM IN LONDON". I am pretty sure most of us know who she is and I can say she was the first on some other blogs too..,the first comment which she wrote kept me here on blogsville( thanks N.I.L) and today I am a proud blogger to 54 member readers! I know some people think 54? I say yes 54! and I am proud. I hope for more but for now that's what I have and it sure would get better!

So, my dear 54 and visitors passing by, Thank you all for being here today.

Does my cake not look pretty..?I baked last night because I couldn't get some sleep...but well it's also my blog's birthday!
Specially to those passing by, come around more and you may take a step further by hitting the follow tab..*wink*

Cheers people!

Hi everyone, today is one of those days I want to bore some of us with some medical stories..,yep! I said bore because some of us do not really like anything without fashion,gist or some global news orientation but I would like to say here that knowing some basic things about how our body works is also as important and as much fun too if not more!!
So, lets take the journey together!!

Someone just raised an eyebrow like "why the Plural?"

Oestrogen as a word per se doesn't refer to just one hormone as it implies as a singular word! That's why in this post I decided to use Oestrogens because its sounds more correct and helps keep it in memory that has components.!

Although if you say Oestrogen or Oestrogens it's still the same.

Oestrogens as a group can be broken down in 4 parts:

-ESTETROL(E4 only during pregnancy)

Someone just said "hmm so what if they are four don't they just do the same thing?"

The answer: Yes and No.

First I think its important to know that quantitatively E3>E2>E1 that is E3 is more in circulation while E1 is the least!

Secondly, it is also important to know that E3 is the weakest and E2 is the strongest!
So imagine if one had more E3 than E2..,sure that person's organism won't function the same as if it had been the other way round.

All through the female's life the level of importance and predominance of each of these hormones vary greatly.

For instance during puberty till menarche, the chief controller is E2 , while during pregnancy E3 and E4 take over!
In post menopausal women E1 runs the show.

Where do they come from?
Main source is from the Ovaries (in non pregnant) and the placenta(in pregnant)
Other minor sources are breasts,adrenal gland,liver and fat cells. (Note: Fat cells as a source is especially important in post menopausal women)

What do they do?
They function basically the same (NOTE; Their functions are not restricted to only the female reproductive system. They impact the Blood system, Digestive system, Psychology in short every other system!)
Here I would list only their basic female reproductive system impact;
-development of sexual characteristics e.g breasts
-increase uterine growth
-increase vaginal lubrication
-regulation of menstrual cycle(to be explained further in a later post)

Hope you discovered something new?
I'd love to hear from you.,so please leave you questions and comments below.

Closing remark:
Everything in the human works in its entirety based on an order of balances, one thing out of place and everything is out of sync.

Cheers people!!

What is wrong with the world??

This by no means a post in which I would start sharing moral ideas. It's just to show how cruel we humans can be.
