Many women live with symptoms every day that are a sign of a hormonal imbalance.
These symptoms can include fatigue, depression, allergies, endometriosis, PMS, period disturbances and hair loss. The symptoms may be caused by many reasons, but the basic reason is there is an incorrect relationship between progesterone and estrogen levels in the body.
The number of female hormones produced can vary month to month. The production of the hormones is dependent on factors such as nutrition, weight, exercise, stress, ovulation and polycystic ovary syndrome. Hormonal imbalance can be caused by contraceptive pills, hormone replacement therapy, lifestyle-related factors, and external factors (such as pollution or incorrect administration of medication).
Our Omaha OBGYNs at Methodist Physicians Clinic Women's Center can help you assess your hormonal health and determine what type of hormonal imbalance you are experiencing (estrogen, progesterone or androgen imbalance). From there, we will work with you to find the right treatment for your condition. Many times, hormonal imbalance treatment is much simpler than many women have imagined.
