The Connecticut Center for Integrative Medicine offers women’s hormonal health services
Your hormones are responsible for a range of effects on the body, and when they are out of balance, they can cause us to not feel quite like ourselves. At the Connecticut Center for Integrative Medicine in Stamford, Connecticut, we can evaluate your hormonal balance and help you feel your best every day!
Why is women’s hormonal health important?
Well-balanced hormones can ensure that your body is functioning correctly. When in balance, you will feel good and stay healthy. However, if hormones become imbalanced, it can impact your mood, sex life, and body weight.
What are the most common symptoms and signs of hormonal imbalances in women?
There are different types of hormones, and their levels can affect many parts of the body. Some of the more common signs that you may be dealing with hormone imbalances may include:
- Unexplained changes in weight
- Hair thinning and loss
- Puffy, rounded face
- Unexplained fatigue
- Muscle weakness
- Depression and anxiety
- Moodiness and irritability
- Lowered sex drive
- Joint and muscle pain and stiffness
- Increased hunger and thirst
- Increased frequency of urination
- General unwell feeling
Do hormonal imbalances affect women differently than men?
Most women experience hormonal imbalances along with their reproductive health. This means that significant hormone changes can occur within the menstrual cycle, during and after pregnancy, and when perimenopause and menopause begin. Some more common symptoms seen in women with hormonal imbalances include vaginal dryness, hair growth on the face and body, menstrual irregularity, increased acne, hair thinning and loss, discomfort during sexual intercourse, and night sweats. Women can undergo a hormonal imbalance test to see if they are dealing with a progesterone deficiency or estrogen dominance, which is the most common reason for imbalances and symptoms.
