Do you feel tired all of the time? Are you noticing weight gain that’s hard to shed? Do you notice more hair falling out than normal? Are you dealing with hot flashes or night sweats? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, then you could be dealing with a hormonal imbalance. This can happen to women of all ages, but our Brownsville, TX, gynecologist most often treats hormonal imbalances in premenopausal and menopausal women.
Signs of a Hormone Imbalance
Our hormones have to be in perfect balance for us to feel our best. Unfortunately, as women get older, they are more likely to deal with hormonal imbalances. You might be dealing with a hormone imbalance if you are experiencing,
- Irregular periods or no periods
- Insomnia or changes in sleep
- Loss of energy
- Brain fog
- Trouble concentrating
- Changes in appetite
- Unexpected weight gain
- Difficulty losing weight

Treating a Hormone Imbalance
Here at our Brownsville, TX, practice, Dr. Guajardo and his team want to make sure that women have access to the care they need to help balance out their hormones and to help them feel their best in all stages of life. One of the most common ways to balance hormones is with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). During your evaluation, we will run the appropriate tests to check hormone levels before we create your HRT treatment plan. After all, your blood results will help us determine which hormones need to be adjusted.
Along with hormone replacement therapy, many of our patients also see an improvement in their symptoms through increased exercise, improved sleep hygiene, a healthy diet, and other simple lifestyle changes. This is also something that we can discuss during your consultation.
