December 28, 2017
Hormones influence a lot of processes happening in your body. It means when your hormones start acting up, it can produce a number of unpleasant symptoms.
Changes in hormones are normal when it comes to periods, pregnancy, or menopause. But these changes can also be caused by certain medications or health problems.
Below is the list of the most common symptoms of hormone imbalance in women:
1. Irregular periods
In most cases, women have their periods with about the same interval each month. But if your period starts earlier or later than usual, or doesn’t start at all in some months, it can be a sign that your female hormones (estrogen and progesterone) are off balance. If you are in your 40s or early 50s, these hormone changes can signify the onset of perimenopause. But irregular periods can also be a sign of health issues, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome. Discuss your concerns with your doctor.
