10 Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms
From the Menopause and Hormones Articles List
How do I know if I am dealing with hormonal imbalance?
One of the reasons that menopause
can be so uncomfortable is the hormonal imbalance
it causes. Beginning in perimenopause
, the amount of hormones produced begin to change and not be in sync with each other. As a result, you can be left with symptoms that leave you miserable and frustrated.
There are reasons other than menopause which can cause hormonal imbalance, too. A poor lifestyle, thyroid issues, genetics, and fibroids
are just some of the other reasons you could be dealing with hormonal imbalance. If you use birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
in the incorrect dose, they, too, can be culprits.
Below are 10 common symptoms of hormonal imbalance:
Long term hormonal imbalance can cause new health issues, so it is important not to ignore these symptoms. Keeping a detailed symptom diary
can help you determine if your symptoms are chronic and affecting your overall health and quality of life. You might be able to pinpoint a connection between medications, diet, exercise, etc. as well. You can also share your symptom diary with your physician
to help him better access your situation and offer you the most appropriate treatment.
