While men see a decline in hormones beginning about age 30, women deal with fluctuating hormones throughout their life. The menstrual cycle includes dramatic rises and drops in both estrogens and progesterone. Pregnancies, peri-menopause and menopause all pose challenges to feeling balanced and whole.
Women lose 50% of their testosterone between the ages of 30 and 40, and menopause brings a steep decline in estrogen and progesterone.
Symptoms of imbalanced hormones in women include
- Weight Gain, especially around the middle
- PMS, cramping, and/or heavy bleeding
- Headaches, including migraines
- Mood fluctuations and/or depression
- Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
- Low or absent libido
- Vaginal dryness / painful intercourse

Testosterone, Estrogen and Progesterone
Testosterone is present in both men and women. It helps to control protein synthesis, and proper levels will provide more energy, help maintain muscle strength and tone, encourage healthy fat levels, and improve libido and sexual response.
The female hormones estrogen and progesterone are crucial components of a woman’s health. Not only do they contribute to a woman’s menstrual cycle and ability to bear children, but they have an impact on other areas of the body.
Many organs of the human body have estrogen and progesterone receptors. These receptors are prominent in skin, bone, breast tissue, the uterine lining, and blood vessels. The dominant hormone is estrogen, accounting for women’s secondary sexual characteristics. Estrogen is a factor in the changes that occur in tissues of the breast, vagina, uterus, and other organs.
Progesterone is a balancing hormone, calming the effects of estrogen. It is important mainly for the preparation of the endometrium for implantation of the egg during pregnancy and the maintenance of pregnancy. Progesterone has characteristics that balance and counteract the adverse effects that estrogen can have. For example, some women produce too much estrogen, thus increasing the risk of cancer of the uterus and breast, and causing side effects such as headaches and migraines, among other things.
A proper balance between the hormones promotes long-term good health and minimizes the risk factors of developing diseases and disabilities in the future.
