Manner of speaking: This is really just a manner of speaking that basically means that certain hormones are not present in your body at the proper levels. The way to tell is to test your blood and measure the levels of the hormones in question. Treatments are then aimed at either restoring these to their natural levels or blunting the effects of the "imbalance.".

Irregular periods. : "unbalanced hormones" usually refers to when women have irregular periods or menstrual cycles. This happens when they are not ovulating or releasing an egg. They usually don't produce Progesterone hormone in the last part of their cycle thus "imbalanced hormones.".
