The Major Role Your Thyroid Plays in Fertility
Your body is wise and every symptom you have is a form of communication, a way for your body to tell you that something needs to be addressed. So, if you’re not getting pregnant or you’re experiencing miscarriages, your body could be telling you that it’s not healthy enough to support a pregnancy.
At North Dover Chiropractic Wellness Center, we listen to your body’s message instead of forcing it into behaving with fertility treatments. We perform detective work on why you’re having difficulty getting pregnant, why your body is producing fibroids or cysts, why your hormones are out of balance, and so on.
One of the biggest reasons is your thyroid, which plays a major role in fertility.
The Connection Between Your Thyroid and Fertility
There are a group of thyroid disorders (more common in women than men) that can negatively impact fertility. They can affect ovulation, throw hormone levels off balance, cause irregular menstrual cycles, increase the risk of miscarriages, and increase the risk of premature birth.
In addition to running conventional blood tests for thyroid function we can find a natural way to balance your thyroid by looking into nutritional deficits and the presence of heavy metals in your blood. This offers you so much more than taking a prescription to help regulate your hormones. Which will help identify underlying causes of your thyroid issues, which often stems from poor nutrition, making it a simple and non-invasive solution. A Functional medicine approach addresses thyroid imbalance by identifying hidden stressors.
