Hormonal Imbalances and Trying to Conceive

If you are trying to conceive, hormonal imbalances can make it extremely difficult to get pregnant. Find out the types there are and the treatments available.

Hormonal imbalances are quite common in women and men. In fact, hormonal imbalances are one of the most common. However, if you are trying to conceive, hormonal imbalances can make it extremely difficult to get pregnant. Some women who suffer from hormonal imbalances are infertile and can not have children. Other hormonal imbalances are able to be reversed through treatments and medications, and these couples can go on to have successful pregnancies. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Progesterone imbalance

One of the most common hormonal imbalances that is present in women who have fertility issues is an imbalance of the hormone progesterone. Progesterone is a very important hormone for fertility, conception, and pregnancy. If a woman has levels of progesterone that are too low, she will often have a very short luteal phase. The luteal phase is the length of time between ovulation and the beginning of the menstrual period. A short luteal phase means that fertilized eggs are not able to properly implant in the uterus, and miscarriage can occur. Progestrone imbalance is one of the easiest hormonal imbalances to treat, however, and Progesterone levels can usually be improved fairly quickly and easily.

Estrogen imbalance

Estrogen is commonly known as the female hormone, and it is one of the most important female reproductive hormones. Having the right balance of estrogen in the body is important to be able to maintain optimal fertility. Too little estrogen can prevent a woman from ovulating. A lack of estrogen in the body can also keep the uterine lining from thickening enough to support a pregnancy. On the other hand, too much estrogen in the body can lead to irregular periods, making it also difficult to get pregnant. Doctors have many different ways of treating estrogen imbalances, and there are also many herbal and natural treatments that may help.

Prolactin imbalance

Prolactin is the hormone that controls the production of breast milk. Prolactin is also responsible for triggering the hormones to begin ovulation and allow the eggs to grow and mature properly. If your Prolactin levels are out of whack, it can be difficult for you to become pregnant. However, usually Prolactin levels can be balanced out easily and most women with Prolactin imbalances go on to have a healthy pregnancy. It can be as simple as stopping a certain medication that is having a negative effect, or treating an underlying condition that you might not have been aware of.

Lutenizing hormone imbalance

Lutenizing Hormone, also known as LH, is a hormone that is triggered by your pituitary gland. It is responsible for regulating your periods and also ovulation. LH tests can also tell your doctor lots about your ovarian reserve and how many viable eggs you have remaining in your body. High levels of LH could indicate that you are in menopause, or perhaps that you are suffering from PCOS. Low levels of LH will usually mean that you are not having your periods. Your doctor will be able to determine what steps you need to take to get your LH balance back on the right track.
