Fatigue is a common tell-tale sign of hormonal imbalance in women, especially prevalent during peri-menopause and menopause. Fatigue is a medical term used to describe a state of lethargy or feeling unusually tired and worn out for an extended period of time. Chronic fatigue may also be associated with mood swings, weight gain, insomnia, depression, decreased libido, and anxiety.
Fatigue saps your energy limiting the number and quality of things you would like to accomplish each day. Low and fluctuating estrogen levels often result in insomnia and night sweats which can aggravate fatigue. Low levels of progesterone are also linked to fatigue in women along with decreased libido and pessimism. Severe fatigue in women may also be a sign of adrenal fatigue symptoms.
If you are experiencing low levels of estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone, it will quickly be revealed in your initial tests. A customized plan to balance your hormones may relieve not only your symptoms of fatigue, but also many of the other menopausal symptoms as well. By keeping your hormones within a normal level and maintaining a proper nutritional, vitamin, mineral and fitness plan, you can regain your energy and live the life you desire.
