Few people know this, but the thyroid plays a vital role in hindering the desire of many women to get pregnant
According to some studies, thyroid and fertility are closely linked, so it is important to check your thyroid before going on a pregnancy. Many thyroid diseases are in fact considered to be the cause of infertility, especially if they are not treated properly.
Thyroid and infertility
The first thing to do in these cases is to check the amount of TSH in the blood, in fact this value varies in case of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. A normal level is such when the values are around 1 and 2. In the presence of values greater than 2 or lower than 1, usually women cannot get pregnant.
Several statistics have also shown that women who have a normal TSH level, ie between 1 and 2, face a much calmer pregnancy and no particular problems. If you have difficulty getting pregnant or have frequent spontaneous abortions, it could be the thyroid's fault and TSH's excess or deficiency. Faced with this problem it is necessary to contact an endocrinologist who is able to develop a therapy that can stabilize TSH and consequently fight infertility.
But how can we understand if the cause of infertility is precisely the thyroid? When a woman fails to get pregnant for a long time, she should contact her doctor and ask, if necessary, to undergo various tests to assess thyroid function. The tests allow to identify the level of TSH in the blood and, if the value is even slightly higher, it will be necessary to contact an experienced endocrinologist who has already treated problems related to infertility and thyroid.
Thanks to the doctor's help it will be possible to relate the thyroid to infertility and consequently undergo medical treatment and therapies in order to remedy the problem. The important thing, as always, is to act promptly, so as to best treat the mother and ensure not only conception, but also a serene pregnancy.
