5 Reasons Why You May Be Suffering from Hormonal Imbalance

According to Northwell Health, hormonal imbalance affects nearly 80% of women, but many people are unaware that they have a problem with hormonal health. As a result, many people don’t experience symptoms like heart palpitations, insomnia, fatigue, and more until they have reached a higher level of imbalance, like delayed ovulation or PMS. As your hormones continue to fluctuate over the years, this can affect weight loss and gain, mood swings, and overall wellbeing. There are several indications that show why you may suffer from hormonal imbalance.

Nightmares or Sleep Disturbances

Women often report having nightmares or sleep disturbances during menopause due to lower levels of estrogen in their bodies, causing disruptions in circadian rhythms (the 24-hour cycle in which our bodies naturally wake up and go back to sleep). They may also experience difficulties falling asleep at night, often caused by moderate amounts of estrogen in their bodies.

Hot Flashes or Night Sweat

During menopause, the body produces small amounts of estrogen even though the ovaries no longer generate enough. As a result, it can cause hot flashes and night sweats that often wake women up or make it difficult for them to fall asleep at night. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and menopause are normal. However, they can also cause a hormonal imbalance in some women.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain

Many women experience weight gain during menopause as their ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone, which helps regulate body fat and maintain a healthy metabolism. When this happens, the body tries to compensate by increasing calorie intake to maintain its weight.

Stress

Stress can cause hormonal imbalances in two ways: by increasing cortisol (the stress hormone) production or by decreasing testosterone production. Cortisol blocks testosterone receptors, so the more stressed you are, the less testosterone you produce.

Medications

Birth control and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) treatments can cause hormonal changes that lead to hormonal imbalance symptoms such as bloating, breast tenderness, weight loss, and thinning hair.
