There are many conditions that might affect your hormones, and this can cause a hormonal imbalance. Hormone imbalances can affect different areas of your health and how you function each day. If you have too much or too little of a hormone, it can affect how your body functions and maintains itself. Hormones control many processes in the body and it’s important to make sure that everything is running and working as it should. If you’re dealing with certain types of hormonal imbalances, it’s important to talk to our OBGYN Dr. Richard Williams at Williams OB/GYN & Associates in San Dimas, CA about how you can treat these imbalances and start feeling your best again.
Dealing With Hormone Imbalances
Most often, women may deal with hormonal imbalances as they age. It’s common that this can happen around menopause in women and it can affect how you feel on a daily basis. There are also certain conditions that may affect your hormones and cause an imbalance. These common conditions include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), pregnancy, thyroid disease, or menopause.
Symptoms of a hormonal imbalance can include:
- Irregular menstruation
- Weight loss or weight gain
- Mood swings
- Depression or anxiety
- Skin tags
Some conditions like pregnancy, are temporary hormonal imbalances and can go away after the pregnancy is over. It’s important to talk to our OBGYN about how you can treat hormonal imbalances. Treatment will look different for each person. It’s important to find the cause of the hormone imbalance and treat that. That might mean taking medication to deal with thyroid hormones. You may also need to make certain lifestyle changes to fully treat your hormonal imbalance.
