How Hormone Imbalance Affects Women’s Health

Dr_Della_Parker_5 Ways to Balance Your Hormones and Lose Weight

Stress is a major factor in so many of our modern lives, so much so that it can easily manifest as health issues. Stress impacts adrenal function as well as hormone levels. Managing stress and its byproducts can be harrowing, to say the least, but if you look out for these hormone-imbalance red flags, you can potentially quell imbalances before they sabotage your everyday activities.

Irregular Periods

An absence of periods for at least 3 months even though a woman is not pregnant, excessive menstrual bleeding, debilitating pain and cramping during periods, and infrequent periods can all be heralds of hormonal imbalances and should be discussed with your primary care doctor.

Unshakeable Fatigue

Progesterone is an important hormone released by the ovaries that helps you sleep. Low levels may make it difficult to fall and stay asleep.

Sudden Skin Problems

Persistent acne can often be the result of excess androgens, male hormones like testosterone that both women and men have. Excess levels of these androgens make oil glands extra productive.
