4. Persistent Acne

Many women get acne breakouts just before their period due to a shift in hormones. If you find that you are getting breakouts of cystic acne frequently, then the real culprit could be the male hormone androgens. Testosterone stimulates the excess production of oil, which becomes trapped under the skin, then mixes with the bacteria that causes acne, leading to clogged up pores and zits galore. The higher your testosterone level, the worse the acne. You can try using coconut oil on your face each night to help stop the bacteria that cause acne, or try any of the herbs that are known to help fight acne.


5. Loss of Sexual Desire

This frequently happens to women with hormonal imbalances, often due to a lack of estrogen. This one can be fixed by seeing your doctor who can prescribe a vaginal estrogen cream or a patch. You can also try eating more foods that simulate estrogen, such as soy.


6. Brain Fog

Does it suddenly seem as if you are forgetting everything? Where you left your keys, your purse, your mother-in-law. Ok, maybe you aren’t so worried about the last one, but this doesn’t mean you are getting Alzheimer’s. More than likely, it simply means that you have been under a great deal of stress, and your body is making larger amounts of a stress hormone called cortisol. Studies have shown that high levels of cortisol can interfere with short term memory and learning abilities. Find natural ways to de-stress such as yoga and meditation.
