Hormonal imbalance is considered to be one of the common medical conditions that most women experience. Many of us would think of menopausal periods when we hear about “hormones”. In fact, hormonal imbalances and menopausal syndrome are correlated. But the sad fact is that this very uncomfortable medical condition could occur at any time in the life of an individual.
Most women usually would manifest the different hormonal imbalance symptoms during their early 20s up to 40s. The increase in imbalances is more exhibited among older women, especially if the indications of the condition had been overlooked. The woman may manifest some of the listed hormone imbalance symptoms:
•General weakness, anxiety, exhaustion
•Facial hair growth and loss of hair
•Low sexual urge
•Urinary incontinence and infections
•Weight gain, edema
Hormone imbalance symptoms occur due to the disparity in the relationship between the levels of progesterone and estrogen. When these disturbances occur, there would be an unusual outcome in the general health of a woman, thus results in several manifestations of imbalanced hormones. The quantities of these hormones that the body produces on a monthly basis differ, depending on several factors like nutrition, stress, exercise and most significantly ovulation.
The quantity of the estrogen would rise especially during the first 10-12 days of menstruation. In the ovulation phase, there would an increase in the number of progesterone. During the 28th day or so, there is a drop in both hormone levels, which results in menstruation.
There would be a great imbalance between the estrogen and progesterone especially when women do not experience the ovulation period. The outcome would have different manifestations of hormone imbalance symptoms because of the decreased level of progesterone and increased levels of estrogen.
A person might experience only some of the indications but still suffer from severe hormone imbalances. When the person is already exhibiting the hormone imbalance symptoms, he or she also has some feeling of discomfort. Often times, women get worried about their weight gain before they can take note of other symptoms.
Therefore, it is very important to have a regular check-up with a medical practitioner to know the diagnosis and to have early management before the symptoms would become severe.
