The human body is controlled and monitored by a variety of regulating and controlling systems. The hormones are one of these systems: They are messengers that circulate in the blood and provide information to the various organ systems (similar to a pneumatic tube system).
Much like the course of a person’s life, hormones are subject to age-related fluctuations. Hormonal disorders occur most often whilst women are growing up (puberty) and during the menopause (perimenopause). External influences, e.g. drugs, can also disrupt the hormonal balance of the body.
Stress, smoking, mental stress, travel etc. also play an essential role.
Weight problems may also have hormonal causes or, conversely, being overweight can result in a hormonal disorder.
In any case, when there is disturbance of the menstrual cycle, dryness of the mucous membranes, hair growth problems, acne and similar symptoms, a gynecologist should be consulted: We are specialists in women’s hormonal processes and are able to explain the roots of these problems and return balance with targeted measures.
Worldwide ongoing studies suggest that there are extremely varied opinions on hormone therapy during the menopause. Formerly, it was indiscriminately prescribed, whereas nowadays it is only prescribed in cases of pronounced deficiency symptoms, and only at low doses and for a limited time, as a substitution.
