COMMON HORMONE-RELATED CAUSES OF FEMALE INFERTILITY:
Progesterone produced by the ovaries during the second half of
the menstrual cycle is essential for preparing the uterus for
implantation of the fertilized egg. In some patients, ovulation and
fertilization of the egg may occur normally but progesterone is
not produced in sufficient amounts to sustain pregnancy.
Low levels of the thyroid hormones fT3 and fT4 may prevent
ovulation, which can be indicated by no periods or irregular
cycles. Autoimmune thyroid issues, resulting in elevated levels
of antibodies to the thyroid gland can increase the risk of
PCOS (POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME)
PCOS affects between 6% and 15% of women during their reproductive years. PCOS is a common cause of ovulation problems, weight issues, and miscarriages. Once PCOS is recognized and treated, many women are able to become pregnant.
LOW EGG RESERVE
Declining egg production is the primary reason for the age-related decline in fertility. A low egg reserve can also be caused by premature ovarian failure.
Stress affects ovulation due to its effect on the endocrine system. High cortisol can inhibit ovulation, where low cortisol can affect the immune changes necessary for implantation to occur. Stress may also lead to the development of endometriosis, which is found in more than 50% of women with unexplained infertility.
