3 Signs Your Hormones Are Off Balance

According to Newsweek, about 80% of women suffer from hormone imbalances. However, the signs and symptoms of a hormonal imbalance often lead many women to believe that something else is wrong. For example, when a person is constipated or has diarrhea, they may be diagnosed with a digestive disorder. However, this is also a common sign of a hormonal imbalance that can require hormone replacement treatment. These are other common signs that your hormones are off-balance.

You're Experiencing Reproductive Problems

Problems in your reproductive system are a key indicator that hormone replacement therapy may be in order. Menstruation problems are common. For example, you may experience irregular periods that are too heavy or are suddenly lighter than ever. Alternatively, your periods may not come at all. When they do, pain in your abdomen and back may occur. Another common sign of a hormonal imbalance is infertility. If you suddenly have a low sex drive, this may also signify a hormonal imbalance.

Other Bodily Functions Are Off Balance

Hormones control many things that don't involve your reproductive system. For example, they regulate blood pressure, growth, and stress levels. When your body is not balanced, it's a sign your hormones are off-balance. You may feel stressed and anxious more often than usual. Instead of feeling upbeat, you may feel fatigued consistently. It's common for hormone levels to impact blood sugar and cholesterol levels. They can also help regulate your heartbeat. It may be time for hormone replacement treatment if your body feels out of wack lately.

You're Gaining or Losing Weight

Hormones impact your cortisol level, which, when high, can make you pack on the pounds around your waistline. They can also impact your metabolism, resulting in massive weight gain. A hormonal imbalance can also cause a signficant amount of weight loss that is considered unhealthy for you.

The symptoms above are far from the only signs you may be suffering from a hormonal imbalance. Hormones can affect your entire body. You may develop skin conditions, such as a rash on the skin. Excessive hair growth and insomnia are common as well.
