It can be hard to tell when you have a hormonal imbalance. Unfortunately, your body just doesn’t alert you to these kinds of things. However, a good thing about the body is that typically there are certain signs that could clue you in, letting you know that there’s a malfunction somewhere in your system before it becomes a critical issue. Here are some of the signs that you may have a hormonal imbalance and what it means to you.

What is a Hormonal Imbalance?

When you have a well-functioning and hormonally healthy body, it has the ability to create all the vital hormones your body needs to operate successfully and efficiently. However, if your diet or sleep suffers greatly, your body may not effectively produce the hormones needed for a healthy body. This results in a hormonal imbalance. In the beginning, an imbalance of your hormones can seem very slight and has minor effects such as minor weight gain in specific areas of your body. As time goes on, however, it could create bigger problems and eventually cellular anomalies like cancer.  

Possible Signs of a Hormonal Imbalance

When we pay attention to the signs our body gives us, we can be alerted to certains conditions. Some signs or symptoms of hormonal imbalance include: 

  • Tenderness in your breasts
  • Weigh gain around your midsection and thighs
  • Sudden decrease in sex drive
  • Difficult periods
  • Gallbladder issues
  • Endometriosis
  • Mood swings
  • Depression

If you notice any of these signs, it’s a good idea to visit your doctor for a diagnosis and to discuss options that will work for you.
