Acne and Bloating in My 20s — What Could They Mean?

Acne and Bloating in My 20s — What Could They Mean?

Your hormones do a lot for your body. They’re a part of nearly every bodily function from controlling your metabolism to regulating your blood pressure. So, if one of your hormones is out of balance, your body is going to feel the effects. You could end up with symptoms like insomnia or reduced sex drive.

If you’re a woman and you’re experiencing symptoms like acne, bloating, low sex drive, and mood swings, it could be a sign that your hormones are out of balance.

At the Center for Women’s Health Richmond located in Sugar Land and Richmond, Texas, our team of providers wants you to know about hormone imbalances and how hormone therapy can help. 

Hormone imbalances explained

So far, scientists have identified over 50 types of hormones that exist in the human body. Hormones and the glands that make them make up your endocrine system. 

Hormones are essential for regulating lots of bodily functions, including:

Your hormones also help to regulate your stress levels and your mood. They work by carrying messages through your bloodstream to your tissues and organs to tell your organs what to do and when to do it.

If your hormones do become unbalanced, you could experience any of the following symptoms:

Depending on the hormones, women can also experience vaginal dryness, hot flashes, and irregular bleeding.

Treatment options for hormone imbalances

Fortunately, there are treatment options available for hormonal imbalances, so you don’t have to live with these symptoms and a poor quality of life. At the Center for Women’s Health Richmond, we offer BioTE® bioidentical hormones as a solution for your imbalanced hormones.

BioTE bioidentical hormones are made from natural plant ingredients and they are designed to closely mimic your body’s natural makeup. Your body doesn’t even know that they aren’t your body’s actual hormones and uses them as such. 

These bioidentical hormones are delivered to your body through a pellet – about the size of a grain of rice – under the surface of your skin. They’re released in a slow, constant dose so you don’t have to worry about a roller coaster of symptoms like other hormone replacement options on the market.

Your provider closely monitors you while you’re on the bioidentical hormones to make sure they’re working as they should and you don’t have any adverse side effects. 

If you think you’re suffering from a hormone imbalance, come see our team so we can restore your quality of life. To schedule an appointment with us, you can call one of our office locations or use our convenient online booking tool today.
