Women's Health Q&A

What are some signs of hormonal imbalance in women?

Your body produces hormones that guide a vast array of functions. Hormones are critical to all womens' health, but as you near the end of your reproductive years, those production levels naturally decline. 

This creates an imbalance and you may start to experience a number of uncomfortable and disruptive symptoms. Some of the signs of hormonal imbalance in women include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Headaches
  • Weight gain
  • Irritability
  • Hair loss or thinning
  • Fatigue
  • Dry skin
  • Brain fog

Some women only experience one or two of these changes, and the effects are mild. For others, symptoms of hormonal imbalance are overwhelming and change the course of each and every day. 

There’s no need to accept these changes as just another part of growing older. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help by delivering supplemental hormones to balance out your current production levels. 

How can hormone replacement therapy help with imbalances?

The process begins with lab testing to determine your current hormone levels. Your practitioner uses the results to craft a customized hormone therapy program designed to fit your specific needs. 

There are many different ways to receive supplemental hormones. Pills, patches, vaginal rings and creams all work to place top-quality synthetic hormones into your system. Your practitioner works with you to find the right approach for your needs and lifestyle. Incorporating supplemental hormones into your treatment plan resolves many of the effects of hormonal imbalance. 

How long does it take to see results from hormone replacement therapy?

It takes time to find the right hormone replacement therapy approach. Every woman has a unique experience with hormone production. Supplementation will be just as unique and a period of trial and error is part of the process. 

Your practitioner works closely with you to monitor how your body responds to supplemental hormones. Adjustments can be made as needed to customize your experience. Your active participation is a critical part of the process, so be prepared to track your results and communicate with your practitioner.
