How would you know if you have a hormone imbalance? Most of the women I see already have an inkling that something is out of balance by the symptoms that they are experiencing

Symptoms Of Hormonal Imbalance

Most often they have already visited their family doctor who “checked their hormones” and told them “everything is normal” or offered them the birth control pill.

Three Main Problems Here

  1. By checked their hormones, most doctors mean they’ve done a very superficial screening of hormones, LH, FSH, maybe estradiol and maybe progesterone, but often not measured on specific dates of the menstrual cycle that make the results clinically meaningful.
  2. When “everything is normal” even though you feel that hormones are imbalanced, it’s because the “normal” ranges for hormones are extremely wide and so even abnormal people fall into the “normal” range.
  3. Birth control pills only mask the existing hormone imbalance, they don’t correct it.

If you feel like you have a hormone imbalance, always ask for a copy of blood work results so that you can see exactly how extensive testing was and exactly where your results fall in the “normal” range (normal is always in quotes because lab ranges rarely refer to what is actually normal, it is more often an average of unhealthy people).

99% of the time you will find that either: a) only a very few hormones have been tested and/or b) one or more of your results were borderline.

So true! I was trying to get pregnant for 3years without success. Prior this this i had 4 miscarriages all in the 1st trimester. My doctor prescribed different tests including hormone verification which was also normal... loosing hope that i could ever get pregnant, my girlfriend told me that she knew several women with same problem as me and were all successfull at getting pregnant after addressing a progesterone imbalance with a topical progesterone cream. I asked my doctor for a prescription but he wouldnt give ne one and prefered to send me to a fertility clinic...i had had it with all the tests and no answers so i ordered a tube of progesterone cream online with amazon and bam! 2.5 months later i was pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful healthy and strong boy. A simple small progesterone imbalance tbat was so easy to fix prevented me from becoming a mother for years....

This is spot on! I has a severe hormone imbalance that went untreated for several years. By the time I was able to get the proper testing done, I had 5 cysts on one ovary, 10 on the other, and my insulin level was 4x higher than normal (causing me to be on the high end of "pre-diabetes"). At first I was only offered birth control as a treatment option, but in reality I needed to be on a medication to control my insulin levels. Now almost a year later I have lost over 40lbs without changing my diet or exercise program, and my A1c is normal. My menstrual cycle is still a bit off, but it's much better than it was! Ladies, if you feel there is something wrong with your body insist on the proper testing!! It could literally save your life, and it will most certainly change your life for the better.

So what do we do if our Dr runs the normal generic panel of blood work and says you are normal? Then just says they will prescribe BC pill to sort out symptoms. They always do that to me. I had to have an endometrial biopsy because of irregular periods and heavy bleeding. Biopsy was fine. Still feeling horrible. I don't want to go back on BC pill, have been off for about 7 years.

Graphics on your posts usually appear interesting and informative. Too bad I cannot read most of them because of their size. Many of them don't even appear in the article.

Yes I know. I took them for years before I had my son. I used them for birth control not hormonal reasons. I no longer need birth control so I get frustrated when drs want to prescribe to me. I don't understand why they don't test all the hormone levels and just treat the ones that need balancing.

Absolutely Valory Bennett. And these come with some very serious side effects!

It is tough with conventional medicine. Drs just want to give you birth control pills to sort it out. Not a solution in my mind.
