Dr. Heward explains how a woman will know when her hormones are in balance.
That’s a really great question and I don’t have a good answer to that other than the scientific answer as a man which is, the only way to really tell objectively as a scientist is to measure them. We know what the normal reference ranges are for hormones of all types and, as long as you are within those normal ranges or maybe even preferably closer to the mean of those ranges, you’re in balance.
But most women don’t have continuous access to testing facilities that enable them to determine whether their hormones are in balance on a regular basis, so, that’s not a very useful answer to that question. How does a woman know? You can tell; she can tell. And that’s probably the best advice I can give is that you keep adjusting your hormone regimen, your dose, you, along with your doctor, until it feels right. You know when it feels right. You remember what it was like to be young and healthy and strong and when you’re out of whack, you know that too.
And as long as you’re out of whack, don’t be satisfied with anything less than getting back to your old self. You’ll know.
