Summary

Hormonal imbalances can occur at any age-before, during, or after menopause. The reasons for these imbalances vary widely, and can include heredity, environment, nutrition, and aging. While most hormone-related problems are associated with menopause, the fact is that fluctuating hormonal levels can also cause a variety of other conditions, and for some women, the effects can be truly debilitating. What You Must Know About Women's Hormones is a clear and concise guide to the treatment of hormonal irregularities without the health risks associated with standard hormone replacement therapy.
