Have you ever wondered about signs your hormones are out of whack?

If so, you are not alone.

Many women have hormone imbalances at every age.

There are many ways to tell if your hormones are off balance.

While most of us think of estrogen and progesterone as being the key hormones in the female body most likely to throw a woman off balance, there are many other hormones that can wreak havoc as well.

For more information check out these 7 signs your hormones are out of whack.

1. Crummy Sleep

One of the first signs your hormones are out of whack is poor sleep.

You might have a hormone imbalance if you are having trouble falling or staying asleep.

Hormones like melatonin and cortisol affect sleep.

It's no surprise to hear that cortisol affects sleep considering that cortisol is directly linked to the body's stress levels.

2. Changes in Skin and Hair

It’s no surprise that acne and breakouts or oily hair are related to hormones, but did you know that dry skin and hair or even hair loss can be a result of hormones?

It’s true, low thyroid can cause these things.

Fortunately low thyroid function is easily detected through a blood test and corrected by taking a small pill every day.

Be sure to see your doctor if you have noticed any of these changes in your skin and hair.

3. Tiredness

Are you feeling tired despite regular sleep?

Constant fatigue can be a sign of a hormone imbalance.

Of course fatigue is also a symptom of many illnesses.

If you wake up feeling fatigued after a full night's sleep, consult with your doctor to find the exact reason behind your tiredness.

4. Moodiness

Mood swings and irritability are common hormone problems, but it may not always be related to your period.

Even severe moodiness during PMS is not normal.

If you are feeling this way your cortisol, testosterone, or estrogen levels may be the culprit.

Without proper treatment, occasional mood swings can escalate into anxiety or depression.
