UNDERSTANDING THE HORMONES IN YOUR BODY
YOU ARE YOUR HORMONES
Hormones are naturally occurring molecules that act like messengers in your body. They regulate many important body functions, including growth, hunger, thirst, and mood. The so-called reproductive hormones, influence puberty, your sexual desire and your ability to become pregnant. A rise and fall of these hormones in people with female reproductive organs creates and controls what is called the menstrual or monthly cycle.
