Women's Hormones


Hormones are crucial to a woman’s reproductive health. The main hormones affecting the menstrual cycle and fertility are produced by glands in the brain and by the ovaries. Those hormones regulate menstruation, fertility and sex drive (libido). As most women approach mid-life, hormonal changes gradually cause reproductive organs to stop producing hormones eventually leading to menopause.


Hormones are tremendously complex and during the pre-menopausal years imbalanced hormones can pose challenges with mood stabilisation, conception and regulation of your menstrual cycle.


Hormone-related symptoms can start from the age of when menstruation starts. Generally, hormonal issues are usually not a clear-cut case of one hormone level being abnormal, or even one hormone system. Many organs and systems work together, so if one is out of balance, it most often has a negative effect on others.


For example:

Hypothyroidism (under functioning thyroid) -> Low Oestrogen.


Salivary hormone testing is the most accurate analyses of oestrogens, progesterone, and testosterone in determining the need for hormone replacement therapy (HRT, whether using traditional or natural means).
