14 Signs Of Hormone Imbalance Most Women Ignore

Hormones are such an important part of our lives, but it never really occurs to us how important they are until something goes wrong with them. And as you reach some major milestones in life, your hormones can make their presence known in a big way.

Unfortunately, these changes can have some annoying effects on your daily life. But understanding them can mean the difference between suffering in silence and reclaiming your sense of comfort.

But first, it's time to find out exactly how you know your hormones are out of balance. These 15 problems, you may have thought were just part of life, could be key to figuring out what your hormones are telling you.

1. Chronic fatigue

Everybody feels a little tired sometimes, but if it's happening to you all the time, it's probably your hormones. If you're getting too much progesterone, you're going to feel more like sleeping.

Another cause of tiredness is thyroid dysfunction. A blood test will help you find out which one it is.

2. Insomnia

Of course, it's also possible for your progesterone to be too low. If this happens, you're going to have more trouble than usual getting to sleep and — just as importantly — staying asleep.

3. Memory problems

Changes in estrogen and progesterone can make it harder to remember things or to think clearly. But so can thyroid disease, so talk to your doctor if there's some unusual fog in your memory.

4. Stubborn acne

It's normal to have a breakout when your period's on the way, but if the acne sticks around, you could have too many androgens. This causes your oil glands to work a little too hard and clog your pores.

5. Stomach problems

There are a lot of reasons for stomach pain, bloating or queasiness. But your stomach is sensitive to hormone changes, so that could be why they're happening if you're having any other problems on this list. 

6. Headaches

Again, a lot of things can cause headaches. But if you're getting them around the same time each month, that could be your estrogen dropping.

7. Breast changes.

This one's important.If they feel less dense than usual, your estrogen levels are dropping. If they feel thicker than normal, your estrogen's going up.

Either way, talk to your doctor.

8. Irregular periods

If your periods are switching up each month or skipping some others, you could have either too much or too little estrogen or progesterone.

Sadly, it's hard to tell which. Talk to your doctor because this also might be a sign of cysts on the ovaries.

9. Hot flashes and night sweats

Anyone heading towards menopause knows how much these suck. They're usually caused by low estrogen. 

10. Mood swings or depression.

Sudden changes in your estrogen can mess with certain brain chemicals like dopamine or seratonin. This can scramble your moods or leave you feeling depressed

11. Increased Appetite.

When your estrogen drops, it can affect another hormone called leptin, which controls how hungry you are.

12. Diarrhea

If your hormones are causing this, your stomach is telling you that you have too much or too little estrogen or progesterone. But this is only true if you're showing some of the other symptoms on this list.

13. Vaginal dryness

It's normal for this to happen from time to time. But if you're feeling dryness unusually often, it's because your estrogen level is dropping.

14. Low libido

If you're feeling less interested in sex than you usually are, you may be experiencing a drop in testosterone.
