Thyroid disorders and reproductive health
At Viera Fertility Center, we’re concerned with the etiology of your infertility and we’re committed to finding the most efficient treatment to help you on your journey to the family of your dreams. New research indicates that thyroid factors may be in play for some women experiencing fertility issues.
Thyroid hormones control the metabolism via the production of hormones triiodothyronine and thyroxine. Changes in thyroid function can impact greatly on reproductive function before, during, and after conception.
New research has found that hyperthyroidism is more prevalent in women experiencing fertility issues. Hyperthyroidism is found in approximately 2.3% of women presenting with fertility problems, compared with just 1.5% of women in the general population.
