Occurs when there’s too much or too little of a certain hormone in the bloodstream.Due to their essential role in the body, a little as a small hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.

Base on Messages I get from you’ll i will shed more light on 4 essential female hormones.
The Follicle stimulating Hormone (FSH)
Luteining Hormone (LH)
Progesterone and Prolactin
The FSH is released from the pituitary gland. It stimulates the development of the maturing ovarian follicles and controls ovum production
While the LH triggers Ovulation that is the release of mature ovum.
Progesterone is produced in the ovary by the corpus luteum to prepare the Endometrium for reception and development of the fertilized ovum
FSH &LH Stimulates the ovaries to develop and promote the maturation of the follicle from the first day of the Last Menstrual Period (LMP) to 14/15 days after. When the Ova is fully developed, Ovulation takes place .
After the Ova is released, the progesterone comes to play by protecting the uterus Inna steady state to receive the embryo (if any). The linning of the Endometrium becomes richer and nourished by blood vessels and more receptive to the fertilized ova .
When high concentration of progesterone is present in the blood circulation, it reaches the Hypothalamus which stops pituitary from releasing the FSH and LH, the maturation of more ova stops In the ovary . This type of control, where rise in progesterone stops the production of FSH and LH is called a Negative feedback.
Prolactin is also produced in the pituitary gland and it’s mainly responsible for Lactation. Certain drugs or medications or diet are know to trigger the over production of pituitary in the body which is naturally supposed to be high in nursing mothers.
It major effect is decrease of sex hormones. Elevated prolactin can disrupt the reproductive system.
