Our endocrine system produces chemical substances that are called hormones. Every specific hormone regulates a specific function in the body.
Change in the functions of some organs can appear because of the overproduction of certain hormones, and it means that hormonal imbalance in the body occurred. Hormonal imbalance in women which is followed by specific symptoms generally occurs because of the imbalance of two key hormones: estrogen and progesterone which are also the most important hormones in the female body.
The reasons for this imbalance can be divided into two main groups:
- Internal or physiological
They appear because of the changes in the reproductive cycle. In a normal menstrual cycle, the first 10-12 days only estrogen is produced. Then ovulation ‘sends’ information to the female body so that it can produce progesterone hormones equilibrium and there are no symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
