Answering “YES” to 2 or more questions in the hormone imbalance test section it may suggest decreased hormone levels or a hormone imbalance.
Women are peri menopausal for approximately 10 years. The first hormone to decrease is testosterone which decreases in the late 30’s to early 40’s. This causes a hormone imbalance and symptoms of hormone imbalance such as low libido, decreased energy, low self confidence.
Several years later progesterone levels decrease which leads to moodiness, irregular periods, insomnia , irritability, and anxiety. All of these symptoms are from a hormone imbalance and can be successfully treated with bioidentical hormones.
The last hormone to decrease is estrogen. When you lose estrogen all hormone levels are low and you have a complete hormone imbalance. Women experience memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and their hair thins, there nails become brittle, and their skin thickness decreases from 1.25mm to 0.75 mm.
Hormone imbalance and its symptoms and sequelae are easily treatable using bioidentical hormones with an experienced physician. Women can expect to regain their joy in life, have a healthy sex drive and ability to climax, lubricate well when sexually aroused, have better motivation, energy, and self confidence. Women will also have better sleep, no longer be anxious, irritable, or overwhelmed along with the relief of no longer having hot flashes, night sweats or vaginal dryness.
