Telltale Signs that You're Suffering From a Hormonal Imbalance

Men and women who have a hormonal imbalance may suspect that something isn't right without being able to put their finger on it. Perhaps you've lost your vigor and find yourself canceling plans and turning in early. Maybe you've noticed your waistline growing and your libido shrinking. Or perhaps you have classic symptoms, such as night sweats and hot flashes.

While there are many symptoms of hormonal imbalances, they all add up to one thing: You don't feel like yourself. The providers at PharmXHealthOne in Boynton Beach and Port Saint Lucie, Florida, know that restoring the correct balance of hormones can transform your life. 

We usebioidentical hormone replacement to treat hormonal imbalances, which can help you feel more like yourself again. If you've lost your vitality and no longer feel like yourself, it's time to discuss your symptoms with a hormone specialist.

Signs of a hormonal imbalance

Both men and women can experience a loss of vigor when hormone levels dip in midlife. Symptoms of hormonal decline may show up in your 40s.

If you're a man with a hormonal imbalance, you may experience the following symptoms of low testosterone: 

  • Changes in sleep (too much or not enough)
  • Loss of lean mass
  • Decreased stamina
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Increased body fat (especially belly fat)
  • Loss of strength
  • Depressed mood
  • Irritability

If you're a woman with a hormonal imbalance, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood swings
  • Problems sleeping
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Joint pain
  • Weight gain

For some patients, symptoms are mild, but for others, symptoms are severe enough to significantly interfere with their quality of life.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

Bioidentical hormones closely resemble the chemical and molecular structure of the hormones your body makes naturally. When bioidentical hormones are delivered to the body, your body uses them as it would its own natural hormones.

Benefits of treatment

There are many benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men and women. Hormone therapy can help you regain your sense of self-identity. BHRT restores the ratio of hormones so that they're back in balance. Restoring your hormones can relieve the physical and mental symptoms of a hormonal imbalance and help you feel like yourself again.

What to expect from treatment

While results vary, and everyone is unique, BHRT can provide relief quickly. In general, mood-related symptoms, such as anxiety, irritability, and insomnia, often improve during the first week or so of BHRT. 

You should notice continued improvement over the next few weeks. Many men and women report increased energy and clearer thinking in as few as three weeks of starting BHRT.

Six to eight weeks after treatment, many women find that most of their symptoms have significantly improved or resolved altogether.

If you're ready to get back to feeling good, then you're ready to discuss bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. To learn more about BHRT and to see if it may be able to help you, book an appointment online or over the phone with PharmXhealthOne today.
