It has become apparent to me over the past few years that most women are unaware of the role their hormones play on the function of their body.

 

I know for myself, I didn’t have a clue until I started to educate myself when my husband and I were trying to conceive our first child. Up to that point, I was ignorant to the whole process.

I knew that once a month I was supposed to have a period and that it was inconvenient and painful.

Yeah. True story.

What I’ve learned since then is that, the process is far more complex and irregular cycles is only one sign of a hormone imbalance.



Some other indicators could be wonky blood sugar, blood clots, headaches, oily skin or acne, anxiety or depression, dark hairs, loss of libido, water retention, weight gain and the list goes on…



So one thing to recognize about hormones is that they are distributed around the body by the endocrine system. If you don’t know what the endocrine system is, you’re not alone.

I have come across many people in the last few years that didn’t know about it. 

I would encourage you to learn about your endocrine system. I have linked a video above that will help you on that journey. I’ll wait a minute so you can watch it… 



Okay, now that we have that covered, when your endocrine system isn’t working properly for any given reason.. there are genetic reasons but most people suffer from environmental reasons… they have a hard time pin pointing that they are actually dealing with hormone issues because the symptoms can appear to be caused from another source.

If this is the path you’re walking right now, I completely understand how frustrated you can be when you know something isn’t right but you’re having a hard time finding the answers.

It’s especially frustrating when your ability to grow your family is directly connected to those answers. That’s why I made a guide about how I got pregnant with low progesterone.. with the hopes that I can take some of the frustration out of it for someone else.
