Sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what’s going on with your body. Maybe you feel a little off, but you can’t quite put your finger on why, or – most importantly – figure out what to do about it.
Well, we’re here to help! Often feeling bloated, loss of libido, and having severe mood swings (and much more) can be signs of hormonal imbalance.
Hormones are the messengers that dictate the way our cells and organs function, so it’s a big deal if they’re off kilter, and can majorly impact your quality of life.
Luckily, there’s a solution! Read below for some common signs of hormone imbalance in women.
Signs and Symptoms
It is important to note that we’ve listed just a few examples of symptoms of imbalanced hormones.
If you’re experiencing hormone imbalance, you may recognize every single one of these symptoms, none at all, one or two, or things not even on this list!
Either way, we’d love to chat and figure out if Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the solution for you.
1. Irregular Menstrual Cycle
Infrequent or irregular menstrual cycles are common symptoms of hormone imbalance, especially before menopause.
2. Memory Fog
Loss of memory (or “foggy” memory) can mean a few different things, but one of them could be hormonal imbalances.
Changes in estrogen and progesterone can make it harder to recall things. Once again, this is especially common before or during menopause.
This sign is a common symptom of hormone imbalance, and in this case, are caused by your thyroid generating too much thyroid hormone, which can make you sleepy.
4. GI Issues
These could come in the form of:
- Belly fat that won’t go away
- Food cravings
- Weight gain
Paired with other symptoms such as infrequent menstrual cycles or fatigue, stomach problems can be a sign of hormonal imbalance.
5. Mood Swings, Anxiety, and Depression
Changes or decreases in hormones can cause moodiness – estrogen impacts key brain chemicals that dictate your mood, anxiety, and depression levels.
6. Hot Flashes, Vaginal Dryness, and Night Sweats
Your estrogen levels dropping due to a hormonal imbalance can reduce the flow of vaginal fluids and cause tightness.
If this occurs along with hot flashes and night sweats, this could be a sign of hormonal imbalance.
7. Difficulty Achieving Arousal and Orgasm
Female bodies produce testosterone too! If your levels are lower than usual – a hormonal imbalance – this could lead to a decreased sex drive.
8. Muscle Loss, Aches, and Weakness
If your body is producing an imbalance of hormones, this can impact your muscles:
- Causing aches and pains
- Longer recovery periods from injuries
- A loss of muscle altogether
