(NaturalNews) As women, when we think about hormonal health, we usually consider issues related to our monthly menstruation, menopause, sexual health or weight gain. In reality, hormone imbalance can affect our total well-being. For example, women's sexuality has to do with a lot of factors including physical as well as emotional issues. We especially experience the wrath of this imbalance during pre and post menopause and during our menstruation cycle, also known to some as the dreaded PMS (Pre Menstrual Syndrome). But you probably never considered one other important physical factor affecting your sexual mood, which surprisingly is gum disease, also known as the silent disease. This connection is rarely talked about and might at first seem an odd one, but it becomes obvious when you learn the science behind how it all works.

Your Mouth Has a Lot to Say About Your Overall Health

During the different stages of our lives when hormones are fluctuating, from puberty to menopause and pregnancy, many tissues are affected, including our gum tissue. The gums can swell up, bleed easily and become slightly redder during these times of hormone related events.

Often, once the hormone balances, the gums won't necessarily go back to their healthy state automatically. If you practice good home oral hygiene, your gums will go back to normal, if not it will get worse. With this state of chronic gum inflammation, your hormones and even worse, the immune system, can be affected causing a cascade of events, thereby eventually compromising overall health.

Important Little Signs Not to be Ignored

Slight bleeding, red gums and even some swelling, are all signs of inflammation that accompany gum disease. Most people don't pay any attention to the signs of inflammation when it occurs in the mouth. It's no wonder a study published in Journal of Periodontology in January of 1999, reported that at least 23 percent of women ages 30 to 54 have severe gum disease (periodontitis) and 44 percent of women ages 55 to 90 who still have their teeth have gum disease. As far as the general public, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research reported about 80 percent of U.S. adults currently have some form of the disease.

This is surprising in our day and you may wonder how could so many people have gum disease. But truth be known, many people go to the dentist only "when it hurts". If you're one of these individuals, you need a new perspective on oral health, especially if you're sex life is not as exciting as it used to be or you have a hard time managing stress.

When your immune system is healthy, it becomes easier to handle stress, and your mood and hormones stay in balance. If you're feeling run down, feel unable to handle stress with no interest in sex, make a visit to your dentist. Many people may have suffered for years with mood changes and ill health while being treated only with drugs, with the mouth never considered as part of the whole picture. The drugs alone may not help you if chronic inflammation from your gums is not treated.

There really is no excuse not to get regular dental check-ups or to practice good home oral hygiene. Find your soul-mate dentist, have your mouth checked and enjoy a fabulous love life.
