The Role of Hormones and Infertility

The crucial role of hormones in fertility can be disrupted by imbalances for various reasons, posing challenges for those trying to conceive. While IVF may be considered as a solution, it is important to first address and correct the hormone imbalance in order to prepare the body for successful conception and a healthy pregnancy.

The reproductive process involves multiple hormones, such as the Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), estradiol, progesterone, and more.

The growth of ovarian follicles is stimulated by FSH hormones, while LH hormones prompt ovulation and the release of a mature egg from the ovary. Estradiol and progesterone hormones are instrumental in regulating the menstrual cycle.

Additional hormones influencing fertility encompass thyroid hormones, pituitary gland-produced prolactin, stress hormones, and testosterone. Hormonal dysfunction can also arise from insulin resistance and imbalances in glucose levels.

When the levels of these hormones are imbalanced, it can disrupt the reproductive system and hinder the ability to conceive. This includes affecting the function of the ovaries.

At Road to Fertility, our mission is to determine the underlying cause of your hormonal imbalance and develop a personalized fertility treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

  • Aging
  • Poor diet and nutrition
  • Stress
