As women age, it may begin to feel as if the universe has it in for us, as body parts that are supposed to be perky start to sag, skin that is supposed to be glowing and healthy looking begins to appear dull and dry, wrinkles start to form, cellulite begins to make an appearance, and our hair that has been our pride and joy becomes gray and stringy. And these atrocities are only what is visible on the outside; aging can be even more vicious to our insides! Hormone imbalance is one of the big issues that many women suffer from, and they may not be aware that this problem can also be a part of the visible issues you suffer from. Here is a list of some of the more bothersome hormone imbalance symptoms.

Weight Gain

It always has to be about the weight, doesn’t it? If you haven’t changed your diet or exercise routine and find yourself battling the extra LB’s, you may want to check out your hormone levels. Hormone imbalance is the number one reason for unexplained weight gain!


Yes, you heard us. As if wrinkles and gray hair aren’t bad enough, you may find yourself dealing with hormonal acne if your hormones are out of whack. If your sudden reoccurrence of pimples is appearing under the skin of your chin or the line of your jaw, chances are it’s a hormonal imbalance.

Loss of Libido

It keeps getting worse, the further down the list, don’t you think? When interest in intimacy lessens, it is often a sign of hormonal imbalance. Vaginal dryness is another related symptom caused by this issue as well.


If you’re getting more than your normal share of sleep hours, and still feel tired and draggy as the day progresses, it could be your hormones that are the cause. Fatigue is a regular side effect of hormone imbalance.

Frequent Headaches or Migraines

There are many different causes for headaches, so this symptom is a little more difficult to determine, but headaches related to hormone imbalance can be easily relieved with the right treatments, as can all the above listed problems!

SottoPelle to the Rescue

Lucky for you, all hope is not lost. SottoPelle, a bio-identical hormone therapy treatment, can be the answer to all that ails you—all that is related to hormone imbalance, that is! Used by both men and women, a pellet of estrogen or testosterone implanted under the skin releases the hormones into your bloodstream, bringing your hormones back into balance.
