Hormonal problems

Hormonal imbalance

Hormone levels control a vast array of the body’s basic functions as well as the functions more commonly associated with hormone levels, such as menstruation, pregnancy, perimenopause and menopause.

It is natural for hormone levels to change throughout the month in accordance with the different stages of your menstrual cycle, which is why you will notice changes in your body at ovulation, and in the days leading up to your period.

Hormonal imbalance symptoms

When your hormones are out of balance, however, you will notice unusual or especially severe symptoms.

Some of the common symptoms of hormonal imbalance are:

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Irregular periods
  • Acne breakouts that don’t clear up
  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Menstrual pain
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Low libido

Your body’s hormone levels can also be disrupted by internal and external factors, such as environmental toxins, diet, or lifestyle changes.

Chronic stress

Can have a serious effect on hormone levels, because excess levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in the body can alter levels of progesterone, and thus create oestrogen dominance. This can weaken muscle tissue, lower energy levels and libido, and put stress on the immune system, which increases the risks of autoimmune conditions and chronic illness.

Oestrogen dominance

Can also develop as a result of increased body fat. Hormone Replacement Therapy is frequently given to women suffering from severe menopause symptoms and is particularly effective in alleviating night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and loss of libido.

It can also help to prevent osteoporosis, the weakening of the bones which is more common following menopause due to hormone levels.

Natural or bioidentical hormones

Are made from natural substances, and are identical to human hormones. Depending on your specific needs, our doctors can help find the form and method of treatment that is best suited to you.

What to do next

It’s crucial to avoid self-diagnosis and self-treatment, as hormonal imbalances can have complex and individualized causes. Seek professional medical advice to ensure an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management tailored to your specific situation.

What is the difference between bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are exact replicas of the hormones that the body naturally produces, molecule by molecule. Synthetic hormones are not. Both types of hormones are produced in a laboratory.

Absolutely. Chronic stress can deplete levels of some of the body’s most important hormones. The adrenal glands produce cortisol when the body is under stress, which can have a wearing effect on the body, and can deplete stores of other hormones.
