Work Stress Might Not Be The Cause Of Hormonal Imbalance, This Singaporean Endocrinologist Tells You Why
Work Stress Might Not Be The Cause Of Hormonal Imbalance, This Singaporean Endocrinologist Tells You Why

Hormonal imbalance may be considered as an elusive condition. Many Singaporeans suffer from it without them even realising it!

It's often brushed off as common mood swings or a sign of fatigue. A lot of people are unware that this seemingly insignificant condition is a potential gateway to a whole host of other serious problems.

Dr Marilyn Lee, an accredited Specialist in Endocrinology, answered a lot of questions from the DxD Community on common disorders and diseases related to hormonal imbalance.

Here's what she had to share.

In this article, I describe 5 conditions where hormones can affect fertility, as well as the corresponding treatments.

Hi, In PCOS, periods tend to be irregular and less frequent. Progesterone is given periodically to induce a period so that your womb lining doesn't grow over-exuberantly and remains healthy. Generally, if you do not have a period for 2 months, you will be given a 1-week (du...
