A healthy woman's body maintains the proper hormone levels throughout her young and young-adult life. Yet, during this premenopausal time of her life, the three main hormones—estrogen, progesterone and testosterone—can shift out of balance and cause problems. While it's not always clear, what causes an imbalance, we know that premenopause hormone therapy can help you feel better and enjoy life to the fullest again.
What Is Premenopause?
The term "premenopause" refers to the time-period between a woman's first menstrual period to the time of her last regular cycle. During this phase, a woman ovulates and can have children. Premenopausal women often experience a range of hormone-related problems. Yet unfortunately, many doctors do not take their symptoms seriously or listen to their experiences. As a result, younger women can suffer for years without understanding what is causing their pain or discomfort.
At Balance Hormone Center, we believe you. We understand that your symptoms are real and that they need to be treated properly. The most important part of getting help is finding a doctor with specialty training, whom you can trust. We won't discount your symptoms or tell you that what you are experiencing is "all in your head." We believe you.
Common Problems for Premenopausal Women
Hormone imbalances can affect how every part of your body functions, not just your reproductive system. However, the symptoms associated with a hormone imbalance can mimic the symptoms of a variety of illnesses, resulting in a misdiagnosis. It is crucial to your well-being to see a doctor who is specially trained in treating hormone-related deficiencies and creating premenopause hormone treatment programs.
If a primary care doctor dismisses the significance of your feelings about your health, you can end up feeling worse. Or perhaps you might start taking the wrong medications while being left with the same hormonal imbalance. Watch for some of these common problems and symptoms:
- Excessive fatigue and constantly feeling tired
- Unexplained weight gain
- Puffiness in your face and other areas like your joints and ankles
- Increased sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures
- Thinning hair or hair loss
- Heavier-than-normal periods, irregular or missed periods
- Sadness, depression or anxiety
