Many different symptoms can occur when women experience hormonal imbalance. Learn about the common symptoms of hormone imbalance in women, what BioTE® Medical offers to help, and how to get started below.
What are Hormones?
Hormones are chemicals produced within the body that regulate many different systems, including reproductive and sexual systems. The other systems impacted by hormones include ones responsible for mood, bone density, and cholesterol metabolism.
What Can Impact Hormonal Balance?
Many things can impact hormone balance in women. The most basic factor that may affect hormones is fortunately one within our control: our diet. Consistent stress, a lack of physical activity and environmental factors can also impact hormonal balance. Another factor that may impact one's independent capacity for hormonal balance is genetics.
What Are the Common Non-Reproductive Physiological Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Women?
One indication of excessive estrogen production is weight gain. Since estrogen can be produced by fat cells as well as the ovaries and adrenal glands, the cycle of overproduction can quickly become vicious and difficult to break out of without pharmacological intervention. Weight gain may also be caused by a problem with the thyroid.
What Are the Common Reproductive Physiological Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Women?
Before menopause, many women will experience noticeable hormonal fluctuations before their periods. However, severe PMS can indicate a hormonal imbalance. A loss of libido can also indicate hormonal imbalance as well as pain during intercourse.
What Are the Common Emotional Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Women?
Chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety and mood swings are very common symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women. Trouble thinking clearly, often called “brain fog”, is another common symptom of hormone imbalance. Irritability and mood swings are also frequently cited symptoms by women that can indicate hormonal imbalance.
