When Thyroid and Hormone Imbalance May Cause Infertility

Difficulties with fertility and getting pregnant are not uncommon.  For some women, an undiagnosed thyroid problem can be the root of the inability to conceive.  A properly functioning thyroid is absolutely vital for conception and having a healthy pregnancy.  Current meidcal research shows that 21% of women age 30 - 44 struggle with infertility.  While there are many physical causes of infertility, a large percenage of infertility cases reamin unexplained.  These may be as simple and correctible as a hormonal or thyroid imbalance.

According to Columbia University Medical Center, “overactive or underactive thyroid function is more common in women and can occur during pregnancy, after pregnancy (often resulting in post partum depression), or may be the cause of infertility, fetal abnormalities, stillbirth and premature labor.”  

For millions of American women suffering from an under functioning thyroid (a condition known as hypothyroidism), and any hormonal imbalance getting a thorough evaluation is an important first step in solving the dilemma of infertility.  Ideally, the thyroid should be checked before conception.  Done early and often, thyroid testing will help the doctor make any adjustments needed for a healthy pregnancy.  

Left untreated, hypothyroidism can affect the ovaries and prevent an egg from being released (known as anovlulation).  It can also cause a shortened luteal phase, which is the time from ovulation to menstruation, causing an egg to fail to implant securely and be flushed from the body (a very early miscarriage).
