Can The Hcg Diet Help My Hormone Imbalances
Focus on food > fads: After reviewing the scant data from the present HCG diet and the one in the 70s, i still believe a reproductive endocrinologist can comment best on effects of hcg. Wrt being on the diet when ttc or pregnant, i say avoid lo-cal. There are few times in life when diet matters more. The goal is to have the healthiest body for the healthiest baby. Eating 3 toxin-free balanced meals with snacks is best. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

How can smoking, drinking, hormone imbalance, irregular periods and intake of contraceptives affect the results and/or the treatment for dysmenorrhea?
Yes: Phytoestrogens have very weak estrogenic activity. Some women are very sensitive to tiny changes in estrogens/testosterone balance (yes, both sexes have all the 'sex' hormones just different proportions)this being said, just a physician, or tv ad, or internet can have profound effects on what one thinks: 'oh, i definitely have that'.

Does the product maca/maca root enhances the breast, butt, regulate hormone, and help with irregular periods? Also do female hormone pills work
Without researching: this in greater detail I can't give you much, but I can say this... If it did, would there be a single woman on Earth not taking it? Natural miracle drugs just don't exist. If they did, no one would get breast augmentation, diet or exercise, or have menstrual problems. ...Read more

See a fertility specialist and get tested, first. ...Read more
Does taking many Plan B (10times) alters the normal FSH and LH levels? How do I check my hormone levels in the body?
I work in a compounding pharmacy. Can skin exposure to testosterone, progesterone, dhea and estriol cause changes to my period such as longer periods?
Most Likely Not: Keep in mind that the fda discourages the use of HCG in weight control and diet management as it has no established effect on the metabolism of fat or suppression of appetite. Being a hormone, and hence a protein, it will be denatured and rendered inactive by the digestive enzymes when taken orally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hormone Imbalance can it cause your period to be late.Can it give you the symptoms and signs of pregnancy and how can hormone imbalance diagnosed?
Odd question: Hi. For what purpose do you want to control certain estrogen levels? I hate to assume, but I'll guess you're a woman. There are 3 estrogens: estrone, estradiol (the main ovarian one), and estriol. Their control happens all on its own. Since I'm guessing at your intent, I'd say the easiest way to control would be to use birth control pills. ...Read more

Do not experiment on your own or take anything over-the-counter or from a friend or neighbor. ...Read more
What hormones cause calcitonin and parathyroid hormone to be released? I know blood ca level has to do with it, but what hormones cause their release?
No hormones: Parathyroid hormone is released as a response to your calcium level (low calcium causes increased PTH). It is not regulated by any particular hormones. Calcitonin is a hormone that has no obvious function in humans (as opposed to fish). It is made in the thyroid gland, but people who have had their thyroid removed do not need calcitonin to remain normal. ...Read more
Can one increase estrogen naturally with soy or dairy products. Or what's the best birth control pill for balancing hormones.
Naturally is iffy: Some soy products can increase estrogen but there is no clear way to determine which ones increase it and by how much. Too much can be bad too.Dairy is of no benefit. Much wiser to see doc and check levels and then decide on a treatment that works in a predictable, well-studied way. ...Read more
Is it possible to have weekly 'surges' of hormones form low cortisol from over-medicated testosterone and other chemical imbalances, with bad anxiety?
No, not really: Testosterone and cortisol are inversely related. Age, anxiety ; depression can cause cortisol levels to go up. Higher levels are not necessarily due to excess testosterone treatments. Testosterone is an anabolic steroid and causes the buildup of lean muscle mass and strength and cortisol is a catabolic steroid. It does the opposite and is linked to ischemic heart disease due to Insulin resistance. ...Read more
