The Role of Hormones and Infertility

Hormones are crucial for fertility. However, imbalances in hormones can make pregnancy challenging. While IVF may seem like a solution, correcting the hormone imbalance is essential before the body can successfully conceive and maintain a pregnancy.

Hormones like Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), estradiol, and progesterone play key roles in the reproductive process.

FSH hormones promote the growth of ovarian follicles, LH hormones induce ovulation and the release of a mature egg, and estradiol and progesterone regulate the menstrual cycle.

Thyroid hormones, prolactin from the pituitary gland, stress hormones, and testosterone are also important for fertility. Insulin resistance and glucose level imbalances can contribute to hormonal dysfunction.

Imbalances in any of these hormones can cause reproductive system dysfunction and affect ovarian function, making it difficult to become pregnant.

At Road to Fertility, we aim to identify and address the root cause of your hormonal imbalance, creating a customized fertility treatment plan tailored to your body’s specific needs.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Yuabova will carefully listen to your concerns, take your medical history, and conduct a whole-body energy scan with your permission.

Dr. Yuabova aims to pinpoint and tackle the root cause of the problem. She employs innovative functional medicine testing and diagnostic methods to tailor a fertility treatment plan according to your body’s unique requirements.

It’s important to note that difficulty in conception often indicates an underlying issue. This underscores the importance of identifying and addressing this underlying issue, which could pave the way for a successful pregnancy.
