Have you noticed your sex drive decreasing recently? Bloating, fatigue, irritability, hair lose, palpitations, mood swings, problems with blood sugar, trouble concentrating, infertility -- these are just a few symptoms of hormone imbalance. Unfortunately, as a woman ages, her body struggles to maintain hormonal balance. This includes a decrease in the very important hormone for females: estrogen.
Hormone imbalance in women often occurs without them knowing why. The symptoms can range from subtle to debilitating. Often the symptoms are masked with prescription pills for anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, and more.
Hormones affect every cell and system in the body. Some hormonal shifts are normal, like monthly fluctuations of sex hormones responsible for menstruation and ovulation or the changes that occur during pregnancy. Menopause is another time for a normal hormonal shift in a woman's life. Many women may experience weight gain, mood swings, night sweats, and diminished sex drive during this time.
Balancing your hormones is important to help combat these conditions, especially low sex drive. Low estrogen can also lead to vaginal dryness which can make sex painful. The decrease of estrogen greatly affects a women’s sexual wellness.
