Balance is key. When it comes to everything, really! But, especially when it comes to our bodies. Although we rarely think about it, hormones control a lot of what we do! They rage around our systems causing all types of chemical reactions that can affect our behavior, mood and overall health. Hormonal imbalances in women are very common but so many cases go undiagnosed. Read up on these 11 signs that indicate a possible hormonal imbalance and know what to look out for! Check it out!
Libido – A drop in testosterone can cause you to be less interested in sex.
