Many women experience a sense that something is “off” or “not quite right” in their body. As hormonal imbalance intensifies, they begin to suffer from symptoms that range from mild to severe. Even women in their 30s can have signs of a hormonal imbalance.
No one should have to live with an untreated hormone problem.
Here is a guide to some of the most common signs of hormone imbalance—and what you can do to restore harmony.
- Weight Gain/Low Metabolism
Many women have underlying hormonal imbalances that make it difficult to maintain a healthy weight.
- Hot Flashes/Night Sweats
For many women, night sweats and hot flashes are the first uncomfortable sign that something is amiss.
- Shrinking, Sagging Breasts
A change in hormone levels will affect the breasts’ connective tissues and muscles. Your breasts may lose firmness and fullness, and, in many cases, they can change cup sizes.
- Decreased Libido
Another noticeable symptoms of hormonal imbalance is low libido, which starts with disturbed sleep. Without quality sleep our sex hormone production can diminish.
- Painful Intercourse
A significant effect of low estrogen levels on a women’s sex life is reduction in natural vaginal lubrication of the vagina due to decrease in blood flow to the vagina. Reduced lubrication causes vaginal dryness and discomfort and pain during intercourse.
- Mood Swings
Many women experience mood swings and feel anxious in situations that they used to handle calmly before.
- Fatigue/Insomnia/Loss of Energy
Can’t make it past mid-morning without some sort of pick-me-up? How about that mid-afternoon crash? It isn’t normal to feel sluggish, scattered or mentally foggy.
Depression and anxiety are well-known symptoms of low testosterone.
