Studies show that up to 80% of women may be suffering from an imbalance of hormones. Pregnancy, periods, and menopause are all times of significant change for the female body. But other factors, such as medication and sleep can also have an impact on your hormones. Although less common, men also suffer from hormonal imbalances. If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms, you may want to ask your healthcare provider if you might be a candidate for Hormone Imbalance Treatment.
One of the most common symptoms of a hormonal imbalance, fatigue can make it hard for you to live life to its fullest. If you are producing too much progesterone, you will feel fatigued even after a good night of sleep. On the other hand, not producing enough progesterone could lead to insomnia and interrupted sleep. Healthy progesterone levels are essential for both falling and staying asleep. Because men’s testosterone levels peak during sleep, men who have sleep issues may also have a hormone imbalance.
2. Low Libido
As we age, a woman’s level of estrogen and a man’s level of testosterone will decrease. In both cases, these changes can result in a low libido. The drop in estrogen levels in women can also lead to vaginal dryness, making intercourse painful or uncomfortable.
3. Irregular periods
Most women can expect a period every 21 to 35 days. But if you have a hormonal imbalance, your period may not come at the same time every month or you may even skip cycles. The hormones estrogen and progesterone are responsible for regulating our periods. To get your period back on track, hormonal imbalance treatment may be needed.
4. Memory fog
Though memory fog may be associated with many conditions, change in estrogen levels may be to blame. Though experts aren’t really sure how hormones affect the brain, memory fog is a common complaint in perimenopausal and menopausal women. This might be due to estrogen’s effect on the brain’s neurotransmitters. When the neurotransmitters begin to malfunction due to lack of estrogen, it can also lead to memory lapses.
5. Stomach trouble
Digestive problems such as bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and cramping can be signs of many things. Because estrogen and progesterone receptors line the walls of the digestive tract, problems in the gut the area may mean that there is an imbalance of hormones.
