It is completely normal for hormone levels to change throughout your lifetime. From the onset of puberty through to menopause, your reproductive hormones are constantly fluctuating, however if they are too high or too low, they can impact on how you feel every day.
Signs that your hormones are out of balance:
- Moody & agitated behaviour, anxiety
- Night sweats, hot flushes
- Painful periods
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Fluid retention
- Breast tenderness
Many women accept these hormonally related symptoms as just something to tolerate and, they are not!
