Women’s Hormonal Health Q & A

What is women’s hormonal health?

Women’s hormonal health refers to maintaining the right balance of hormones in the body. Your hormones are chemical messengers that strongly influence many bodily functions, including metabolism, mood, reproduction, and sexual function. So, when you experience hormone imbalance, you may have frustrating symptoms in any or all of these areas.

What are the signs I need help with women’s hormonal health?

You might be having hormone imbalance issues if you experience the following:

  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Slowed cognition (e.g., brain fog, difficulty concentrating, or other cognitive issues)
  • Low libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Insomnia
  • Hair loss
  • Excessive hair growth (face, chest, back, or buttocks)
  • Acne
  • Tachycardia (fast heart rate)

There are many other possible signs of hormone imbalance as well. 

Specific hormone-related issues vary with the type of hormone imbalance and its underlying cause. For example, women in menopause often experience hot flashes and night sweats, and women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) often experience excessive hair growth and acne. But, any type of hormone imbalance, including thyroid disorders, can cause symptoms.
