The effect of postpartum tubal
on milk production
The effects of blood supply being affected to the ovaries:
|The onset onset of PTS is not always obvious to the post tubal
woman. She may know that she is sick and that she has suffered a health change
but she may not always be properly diagnosed.
The symptoms of the hormonal imbalances that are often seen in post tubal women are often mis-diagnosed by the medical community as being heart conditions, chronic fatigue, common depression, IBS, common allegeries, and so on.
The medical community avoids hormone testing post tubal women under the age of 40. These women are told that they are too young to be post menopausal when in fact more often then not they are suffering from a hormonal imbalance or are post menopausal.
Severe and prolonged hormonal imbalances of this nature can cause bone loss, heart disease, and can cause psychological symptoms that mimic mental illnesses and Alzheimer's.
Symptom 2 - (flashes) Hot flashes are due to the hypothalamic response to declining ovarian estrogen production. The declining estrogen state induces hypophysiotropic neurons in the arcuate nucleas of the hypothalamus to release gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) in a pulsatile fashion, which in turn stimulates release of luteinizing hormone (LH). Extremely high pulses of LH occur during the period of declining estrogen production. The LH has vasodilatory effects, which leads to flushing.
Symptom 8 - (loss of libido) For some women the loss is so great that they actually find sex repulsive, in much the same way as they felt before puberty. What hormones give, loss of hormones can take away.
Symptom 9 - (dry vagina) results in painful intercourse.
Symptom 10 - (Itchy and or raw vaginal area) A normal vaginal pH level is around 4.5. A vaginal pH of 6.0 to 7.5 -- in the absence of a vaginal infection (yeast infection)-- indicates low blood estrogen levels and signals that the woman is menopausal. "The vagina (and whole area) becomes more acidic."
Symptom 14 - (doom thoughts) includes thoughts of death, picturing one's own death. Feelings of complete despair.
Symptom 17 - (incontinence) reflects a general loss of smooth muscle tone.
Symptom 19 - (itchy, crawly skin) feeling of ants crawling under the skin, not just dry itchy skin.
Symptom 20 - (aching sore joints) may include such problems as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Symptom 27 - (depression) different from other depression, the inability to cope is overwhelming. There is a feeling of loss of self. Hormone therapy ameliorates the depression dramatically.
Symptom 31 - (weight gain) often around the waist and thighs, resulting in 'the disappearing waistline'
Symptom 35 - (shock sensation) This is often discribed as the feeling of a rubber band snapping in the layer of tissue between skin and muscle. It may be a precursor to a hot flash.
Symptom 36 - (tingling in extremities) can also be a symptom of B-12 deficiency, diabetes, alterations in the flexibility of blood vessels, or a depletion of potassium or calcium.
Symptom 38 - (Burning mouth syndrome)
Please note: Some of the symptoms above are also symptoms related to hypothyroidism, diabetes, iron deficiency, and other conditions. If you believe that you may be experiencing a hormonal imbalance or hormone shock, please contact your health care provider to consult and have proper serum testing done. Proper testing will check for ALL conditions. The findings of hypothyroidism, diabetes, or anemia does not rule out that a hormone imbalance is not also occurring. The findings of normal thyroid, insulin, and iron levels does not rule out that a hormone imbalance is not occurring.
