In order for the human body to work like a clock, its hormonal level must correspond to normal indicators. Alas, for many reasons, the endocrine glands, which produce hormones, malfunction, which entails a variety of diseases. Due to the greater complexity of the female body, these problems are more common in the fairer sex.

For example, women (especially at a young age) often have menstrual irregularities.

Hormonal disorders can be treated in a variety of ways. The so-called "hormone therapy" is very widespread and effective. Many women are still wary of her, fearing side effects such as weight gain, voice changes, etc. But this was typical of the first generation hormonal drugs, while modern means lead to such consequences in extremely rare cases.
