Signs of Hormone Havoc in Women

A woman’s hormones impact a whole whack of factors—from mood to energy and from skin to hair. That’s why unexpected health issues, even if they seem somewhat trivial, can often signal that your hormones are out of whack…


1. Hair Loss

According to the American Hair Loss Association, the hormone dihydrotestosterone (or DHT), a by-product of testosterone (a male hormone) can wreak havoc on your hair follicles.

In women, hair loss, thinning, loss of texture and fullness are all signs of excess DHT, or androgen hormones in your body. Low progesterone and estrogen will often start with hair loss or thinning at the crown of the head.
