The Role of Hormones and Infertility

Hormones are essential for fertility, yet imbalances can prevent pregnancy. Some believe IVF is the answer, but it’s crucial to first correct any hormone imbalances to prepare the body for successful conception and carrying a pregnancy to term.

Key hormones involved in reproduction include Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), estradiol, and progesterone.

FSH hormones help grow ovarian follicles, LH hormones cause ovulation and the release of an egg, and estradiol and progesterone hormones regulate the menstrual cycle.

In addition to FSH, LH, estradiol, and progesterone, fertility is affected by thyroid hormones, prolactin (from the pituitary gland), stress hormones, and testosterone. Insulin resistance and glucose imbalances can lead to hormonal dysfunction.

Hormonal imbalances can lead to reproductive system dysfunction and impaired ovarian function, thereby complicating efforts to become pregnant.

At Road to Fertility, we focus on finding and treating the root cause of your hormonal imbalance, designing a fertility treatment plan customized to your body’s specific needs.
