Several young women today, some in their thirties and some even younger, have started to experience the early onset of hormone imbalance symptoms and their associated disorders.

Some of these symptoms are depression, extreme fatigue and weariness, allergies, endometriosis, hair loss and probably facial hair growth, PMS [PMS symptoms], osteoporosis and so on, and unfortunately, if the symptoms are ignored in the initial stages, then they can grow worse as time goes by.hormone imbalance

The symptoms of hormone imbalance may be caused by a multitude of reasons, but the basic reason is that there is an incorrect relationship between progesterone and estrogen levels in the woman’s body.

These are the two hormones that must co exist peacefully in a perfect balance, and any variations and changes in this perfect balance will start to have a dramatic effect on the woman’s health, thereby causing the onset of the above mentioned symptoms.

Please remember; the amount of these hormones produced in a woman’s body can vary from one month to the next, because they are dependent on factors such as stress, nutrition or lack of it, exercise or lack of it, and ovulation, or lack of it. (Orchid Recovery Center)

When there is no ovulation, the production of progesterone from the ovaries does not happen, and as a direct result, the healthy accepted levels of progesterone start to decline.

This means that ovaries may not produce the eggs that have to be fertilized every month, and as a result, the estrogen levels start to increase. This is one of the main causes of hormone imbalance in a woman’s body.

Few other causes of hormonal imbalance in women:

  • Taking the Pill, a contraceptive and birth control medication, introduced during the 1960s. The Pill was made out of synthetic estrogen, and although it was declared as safe by the FDA, the fact that several women were dying was not taken into account. In addition to several other symptoms, the Pill caused lower progesterone levels, causing hormone imbalance in these unfortunate women.
  • Using hormone replacement therapy or HRT as it is commonly known. The HRT is a combination of synthetic progestins and progestogens, as well as estrogen, and usage of these pills causes a hormonal imbalance in women.
  • Too much of stress.
  • Poor diet.
  • Environmental reasons, including pollution, poisons.
  • Above average consumption of non organic and also animal products that have excessive amounts with estrogen.
  • Cosmetics.

  10. i am a 29 year old female. for some odd reason i have had two menstrals this month. going to the doctor on wednesday but they have already said that i have a hormone imbalance. is this so how can they know without looking at me?

  11. I am going to be 33 in 3 months. I have not had a menstrual cycle in two and a half months. I have mood swings really bad, i feel sick when i eat, my hands shake, my heart races and flutters, i pee alot, my hands shake and i feel bad when i am hot, and yet i am always cold. I am always thirsty, and i am not pregnant. I have no sex drive at all, and am not sure of what is wrong yet. I am going the end of the month for thyroid testing, and next month for papsmear. If not these i will be testing for pituatery gland problems. I feel as if i am going thru menopause, but not sure. My mother and grandmother have thyroid problems so I am thinking and hoping for this outcome as the other problems I really dont want to have. Any advise on foods or otc herbs that would help if i do have hormone problems such as pituatery or thyroid??

  17. I am 27 years old and had two periods last month, one at the beginning and one at the end. My cycles are usually very regular. I eat healthy, exercise, and take natural supplements, so I’m a bit confused as to what may be the problem. I also have had a bad case of acne along my jawline and forehead, and, of course, the nagging facial hairs that I have to pluck out about every other day. My period started yesterday, and it is a lot heavier than usual. What on earth am I doing wrong?

  18. Cici, if you had this problem for the first time, then it might be due to stress, insufficient sleep or other factors. Nothing to worry. Check the next period when it is coming and is it heavier. If it is also heavy, then you consult a gynecologist.
