HORMONE IMBALANCE & INFERTILITY
Hormone imbalance occurs when the human body has too much, too little or out-of-sync production of a hormone or hormones that are important for regulating bodily processes. The proper balance of hormones is essential for efficient reproductive cycles such as the ovulation process in women and the overall system of conception. Hormonal imbalances are the leading cause of infertility in women. For example, Disorders, like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and anovulation, can be the result of a hormone imbalance in women.

How do hormones affect fertility?
Hormones play a pivotal role in female reproduction, particularly those hormones that control the menstrual cycle. In order for a pregnancy to occur, hormones in the body must signal and regulate the growth of an egg within an ovary, the release of the newly formed egg into the fallopian tube and the thickening of the uterine lining for implantation..
An absence or irregular quantity of one or more hormones can delay or prevent any of the above processes from occurring, making pregnancy difficult to achieve.
