5 Signs You Could Have a Hormonal Imbalance 

Jun 20, 2024
5 Signs You Could Have a Hormonal Imbalance 
Fatigue, weight gain, and low libido shouldn’t become your new normal, but these signs of hormonal imbalance are all too frequently written off to aging in both sexes. 

Thyroid issues, menopause, and low testosterone can all lead to hormonal imbalance in the body. The side effects can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing, but there are solutions. If you suspect that your hormone levels are causing your symptoms, we offer bioidentical hormone pellets to supplement your body’s own production. 

At Regenerative MedSpa of Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia, our team of body wellness and anti-aging specialists provides hormone health treatments to balance your body and improve your well-being. 

5 signs of hormonal imbalance

Side effects can vary in specifics, but the major symptoms of hormonal imbalance are similar between men and women. Here are five signs to look out for. 

1. Fatigue

Occasional fatigue and brain fog are to be expected, especially during periods of high stress or overwork. If you’re constantly struggling to feel refreshed no matter how long or comfortably you sleep, hormonal imbalance could be to blame. 

2. Trouble sleeping 

Insomnia, hot flashes, and night sweats lead to restless nights, which contribute to fatigue. Changing your nighttime routine and sleep schedule can sometimes help, but sleep issues that can be attributed to hormonal imbalances caused by aging can and should be treated.

3. Depression

Depression isn’t always an indication that your life circumstances or internal soundtrack are the problem. Sometimes, depression can be caused by the simple fact that your hormones are out of whack and your body isn’t getting the tools it needs to appropriately regulate your mood and mental state.  

4. Weight gain

Unexplained weight gain in women, and increased abdominal fat in men, can be caused by hormonal imbalance. In these cases, no amount of diet or exercise can help; you’ll need to balance your body’s internal systems before you can shed the pounds. 

5. Sexual dysfunction 

Imbalances of sex hormones like estrogen and testosterone are common, and affect all aspects of the reproductive system. Both sexes can experience low libido, with men typically experiencing erectile dysfunction and women struggling with vaginal dryness. 

How hormone therapy can help 

One of the most straightforward solutions to hormonal imbalances is to provide your body with the necessary chemicals. At Regenerative MedSpa of Buckhead, our team diagnoses the cause of your imbalance before recommending natural treatment to correct it. 

We prescribe bioidentical hormone pellets, which use plant-based hormones similar to those created by your endocrine system. Once we place the small pellet(s) beneath your skin, it gradually releases hormones until balance is achieved. The pellets last 3-4 months, and should be replaced regularly to maintain your hormone health.
