Significant/slight abdominal distension

Hormonal fluctuations such as those occurring with pregnancy or at the start of a menstrual period (these raise progesterone levels) can slow down gut motility and cause food to pass more slowly through the digestive system, sometimes causing bloating and/or constipation.

Hormone imbalance can cause skin changes resulting in oily hair or dry, brittle hair.

Female athletes with abnormal or absent periods might have weakened bones.  One study showed that 39% of female athletes with irregular menstruation develop stress fractures.
