Weight gain or weight loss
While more commonly associated with diet and nutrition, weight problems may also be among the most common female hormonal imbalance signs.
Conditions like PCOS and thyroid issues, specifically hypothyroidism, may trigger weight gain. In contrast, hyperthyroidism (too much thyroid hormone) may lead to unintentional weight loss.
Chronic acne and hirsutism
It’s normal for women to have pimples and acne from time to time, but if you’ve had them for a long time, it may be one of the signs of hormonal imbalance in women.
Higher-than-normal androgen (popularly known as “male hormones”) may trigger oil glands to overwork. Excess oil can clog the pores and cause breakouts. Furthermore, high androgens can also lead to hirsutism, a condition where hair grows in unwanted body parts.
Please note that these two signs can also happen due to polycystic ovary syndrome.
Our digestive system responds to the hormones progesterone and estrogen. If you have more or less of these hormones, you might experience changes in how you digest foods.
