Hormones control a wide range of bodily functions. As a result, when hormone production is disrupted, our mood, behavior, well-being, and appearance are all affected. But how do we know that hormones are to blame, and which ones?
You'll learn about the most common symptoms of a hormonal imbalance from Bright Side.
1. Acne breakouts appear suddenly.
Pregnancy and menopause can cause acne because of hormonal changes. Menopausal acne is more common in women with androgen levels in the normal range, but with decreased estrogen levels. Acne flares may be caused by this imbalance.
Birth control pills and IUDs, for example, can cause or worsen acne in some women. It can take months for acne to appear after this change. During the menstrual cycle, women are more likely to experience "flares" or breakouts of adult acne.
2. Acute headache
When it comes to chronic headaches and menstrual migraines, fluctuating hormone levels play a major role. Pregnancy, menopause and oral contraceptives have an effect on hormone levels, as do hormone replacement therapies.
Stress and fluctuating hormone levels can disrupt sleep. To make matters worse, a lack of sleep can alter hormone levels, creating a never-ending cycle of insomnia. For example, during and after pregnancy, menopause, and the menstrual cycle, women may be more susceptible to sleep issues because of hormonal fluctuations.
4) Frequent fatigue.
One of the most common signs of a hormonal imbalance is extreme tiredness. Overproduction of progesterone can put you to sleep. The butterfly-shaped gland in your neck, the thyroid, can deplete your energy if it produces too little thyroid hormone.
One of the most common symptoms is exhaustion, which can be caused by a variety of factors. In the same way that too little progesterone can make it difficult to sleep, too much progesterone can leave you feeling drowsy. Low thyroid hormone levels are another common hormonal imbalance that contributes to exhaustion (hypothyroidism).
5. Breast change
Breast tissue changes may occur if estrogen levels are too high or too low. A high level of estrogen can lead to breast tissue that is lumpy, dense, or even cystic. There may be a decrease in breast density if estrogen levels are too low.
Rapid breast growth can be a sign of a variety of health issues, including a tumor or an unbalanced hormone level.
