Regardless of the advancement of modern-day medicines and technology, some women who can’t get pregnant. And since it is a sacred function which facilitates continuation and sustenance of life, it’s no surprise why women with fertility issues go through such a challenging and traumatic experience.

However, this post will share the knowledge that will help those women be more in control of their fertility issue. Here are three suggestions to get more proactive about this depressing condition.

Get Your Hormones Checked Properly:-

Dr Meredith Fell- a fertility treatment specialist in Melbourne says clearly:

“Hormones act as fertility detectors. And those ladies wanting to have kids in their future, they should get a new fertility test done. It reveals the level of all the hormones associated with fertility.

The Hormones That You Need To Check Out Include:

  • AMH- (Anti-Mullerin Hormone):-They are produced by follicles (those cellular structures which house and even safeguard the eggs). The AHM levels indicate a proper sign of a female’s ovarian condition or more specifically, how many eggs are present.
  • E2- (Estradiol):- This is primarily a sex hormone which helps in the menstrual cycle and in the thickening of the uterine lining to implant a properly fertilised egg.
  • LH- (Luteinizing Hormone):-The LH hormone regulate ovarian functionality in which includes the production of progesterone that sustains the growth of a fetus.
  • TSH:- (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone):- It helps in the production of other thyroid stimulation, reflecting thyroid health and for regulating thyroid functionality.
  • FSH- (Follicle Stimulating Hormone):- This particular hormone is responsible for the growth of follicles and ovulation.
  • fT4- (Free Thyroxine):- They are produced by your thyroid, this specific hormone is properly tested to evaluate thyroid function completely.
  • Testosterone Levels:- This is not just a male hormone; The ovaries and adrenal glands in women produce testosterone which works in the development of follicles.
  • Prolactin:- Also known as the milk-hormone, it stimulates more breast milk production. But if you have a high level of Prolactin, then it can interfere with the ovulation process. 
  • Quit/Or Reduce Smoking:- 

Dr Racheal Saltzman- a fertility specialist in women's health clinics in Melbourne says:-

Believe it or not, but quitting smoking serves as a natural booster to your fertility. When you smoke, the nicotine and other harmful components make those eggs old and susceptible to drying. 

Furthermore, smoking also has a negative impact on how you respond to the IVF, resulting in ectopic pregnancy, preterm labour, birth defects etc. Each of these complications is nothing to joke about. But when you quit this habit, the overall health and reproduction improve in months (even weeks) depending on your condition.”

Check Your Medical History And Genetics:

Try and find out as much about your family’s medical history and genetics. 

Find out:-

  • When your mother started her menopause.
  • Or whether she had any issues in getting or staying pregnant.
  • Or, if there were any genetic history of thyroid issues. 

With That Also Try And Find Out:-

  • If your family has a medical history of PCOS - Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or POI- Premature Ovarian Insufficiency. 
  • As for your own health- look to get an STI test a vaccines checkup (to see if they are up-to-date) and a fertility test.
