Hormones play a huge part in helping with basic bodily functions, such as regulating heart rate, sleep, sexual function, reproduction, appetite, mood, stress, and more. A hormonal imbalance is created when there is too much or too little of one or more hormones in the blood. This can lead to a variety of hormone-related conditions.

What are hormones?

Hormones are chemicals produced by the endocrine glands and released into the bloodstream. One of the most important female hormones that is often overlooked is testosterone. There are more receptors in a woman's body for testosterone than there are for estrogen. Testosterone drops down by half in women from their 20s to their 40s, which is often accompanied by numerous body conditions, including irritability, low sex drive, headaches, difficulty sleeping, and others. Another hormone that also drops in the 30s is progesterone, which can produce symptoms such as increased premenstrual syndrome, increased menstrual blood flow, and sometimes anxiety. Both polycystic ovarian syndrome and even endometriosis are associated with estrogen dominance and inadequate progesterone.

If you think you might have a hormonal imbalance, contact us today for a thorough assessment, where we will go over your symptoms, help you get blood work done, do a pelvic exam, and more. A hormone evaluation will only work if the right tests are ordered, which is why it’s important to match your symptoms with the correct hormone. For example, for hot flashes and irregular periods, your estrogen and sometimes progesterone should be assessed — whereas depression, weight issues, and fatigue could require a thyroid check. On the other hand, many individuals simply want a general hormone evaluation so that they will know exactly where their levels are for future reference if something changes.

Dr. Jukes and her team at Modern Women’s Health can help treat a variety of common symptoms that occur when one has a hormonal imbalance. Set up a consultation with us today to help you get started!
