How The Hormones in Our Body

Our body needs to communicate with itself to coordinate their actions: eat, sleep, drink, laugh, mourn, and for that hormones play the role of internal mail. Are so powerful that a small amount causes large effects on the body.

There are many, however, this time we will act in the way the female hormones, yes those they often blame certain physical disorders:

During the early years of the hormonal system is at rest, but with puberty, the biological clock is activated and the hormones start working quickly. The body takes time to control this process, so annoying observed physical changes, such as acne or excessive hair growth, or changes in behavior. The ovaries begin to produce estrogen and progesterone, are responsible for much of the changes taking place in women. Over time, the secretion of these hormones have a cyclical nature and correspond to the menstrual cycle.

When the uterus has enough estrogen is produced the first rule. In the first menstrual cycle there are usually no eggs, and it takes between eight and ten months after the first period. The adrenal glands increase production of androgens responsible for the appearance of hair in the armpits and genitals. Common disorders in this stage are: acne, delayed puberty and excess hair.

From the changes that occur in adolescence, our body prepares for conception. The hormones produced by the ovaries prepare the body for pregnancy in a cycle that repeats every 28 days or so. It is divided into three phases: first, the estrogen produced by the ovaries stimulate the reproduction of cells that help prepare for the arrival of the fertilized egg, the second phase occurs after ovulation when progesterone levels rise endometrial mucosa and reach the best conditions to nestle the egg, and to end the cycle if no fertilized, hormone levels drop and the endometrial condition deteriorates until, around day 28, begins to fall starting rule .

When you reach menopause is the end of the fertile, since the passage of time depletes the hormonal capacity of the ovaries. Over time, the ovaries secrete less estrogen and progesterone and, ultimately, ovulation disappears. Menopause begins with the last rule (no menstrual flow for at least 12 months), and the average age is 50 years. Usually, at this stage of physical and psychological symptoms, although there are cases where these go unnoticed.
