Hormone Imbalance Q & A

New Beginnings OB-GYN

What is hormone imbalance?

Hormone imbalance, also known as endocrinopathy, is a medical condition that affects your endocrine system and disrupts or offsets your body’s production of hormones.

When your endocrine glands — the family of glands throughout your body that produce hormones — produce too much or too little of a hormone, an imbalance occurs. When hormone levels are imbalanced, numerous health problems can happen as a result and different treatment options can be used to address symptoms.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance depend on the type of imbalance but can include:

  • Nausea
  • Bruising
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of libido
  • Reduced appetite
  • Digestive complications

In many cases, a hormone imbalance can be detected in a professional blood test where the levels of hormones in your blood are examined.

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, is designed to restore hormonal balance and alleviate the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance.

A variety of medications containing female hormones are available to replace the ones that your body no longer produces after menopause. The New Beginnings specialists use only proven-successful, advanced hormone replacement therapy.

Who should consider hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone therapy is often the most effective treatment for menopausal symptoms and is a good fit for most women. To consider hormone therapy, you should be generally healthy. Certain medical conditions might mean that you’re not a good candidate for the treatment.

For most women who are dealing with menopausal symptoms that are impacting quality of life, hormone therapy is an excellent treatment choice.

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

For women experiencing the symptoms of menopause and low estrogen and progesterone production, HRT can provide much-needed relief and greatly improve your quality of life. For example, estrogen can ease vaginal symptoms of menopause, such as dryness, itching, and pain with intercourse.

Hormonal imbalance and low female reproductive hormones also increase your risk of thinning bones and osteoporosis, so hormone replacement therapy can lower these risks by restoring hormonal balance.

Many women find relief from urinary symptoms with hormone therapy. Some studies have suggested that hormone therapy can reduce your risk of other chronic diseases as well, such as heart disease.
