Not quite feeling like yourself, but you can’t figure out why? That’s something to be expected when experiencing a hormone imbalance. In the grand scheme of things, it’s the hormones that keep a woman’s body functioning normally. These essential hormones are produced by several organs at the command of the pituitary gland in the brain, the control center for maintaining a perfect hormone balance. The hormones produced in the body are what control your mood, energy level, digestion, weight management, and sex drive. A hormonal imbalance in females can occur at any age for a variety of reasons. Luckily there is a way for you to regain a healthy hormone balance by recognizing the signs of a hormonal imbalance, and talking to your doctor to determine the cause, and treatment, for your hormone imbalance.

Recognizing the Signs of a Hormone Imbalance

We all experience varying levels of stress from time to time, it’s normal. However, having a hormonal imbalance of a lower than normal level of estrogen and human growth hormone (HGH) can cause feelings of stress, and make it difficult to cope with stressful situations.

Difficulty Sleeping

It’s okay to feel tired every so often, but a hormone imbalance with the sex hormone progesterone can cause difficulty sleeping at night. If you’re having trouble going to sleep, and staying asleep, for a long period of time a hormone imbalance may be the cause.

Unintentional Weight Gain or Loss

Having an imbalance with your stress hormone cortisol can put your body in a constant state of fight-or-flight. During this time the stress hormone forces the body to store fat in preparation of anticipated danger causing weight gain. Fast weight loss can also occur if you eat less than what your body needs to sustain itself, causing your body to readily release stored fat when necessary to deal with the perceived danger. An imbalance of HGH is also associated with unintentional weight gain.

Low Sex Drive

One of the most troubling signs of a hormone imbalance is a low sex drive. A hormone imbalance of the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone in females can cause a low sex drive, and lack of interest in sexual activity. This kind of hormonal imbalance can occur at any age but is most common in pre and postmenopausal women.
