It is a lesser-known fact but thyroid disorders are five to eight times more common amongst women as compared to men. This can be a huge obstacle for women who are trying to conceive and that is because there is a link between fertility and thyroid health. Experts at Wellness Mantra not only render perfect supplements and solutions to diseases that affect us due to our sedentary lifestyles but also ensure that everyone is educated about health disorders and their prevention.
What are the types of thyroid disorders?
Let’s take a look at thyroid disorders before we proceed with their link to fertility.
Hyperthyroidism: This means that the thyroid gland is overactive and the thyroid hormone levels of the patient are higher than normal. This condition comes with symptoms like increased appetite, heat intolerance and anxiety. It can cause the woman to have fewer or lighter menstrual cycles that can interfere with ovulation.
Hypothyroidism: It is the exact opposite of what hyperthyroidism is. An underactive thyroid gland leads to lower levels of thyroid hormone in the patient’s body. This can cause women to feel cold, gain weight, experience fatigue and deal with constipation. It can also result in heavy menstrual bleeding.

What is the link between thyroid health and fertility?
When a woman undergoes problems with her thyroid, it can do more than just interfere with the regulation and production of thyroid hormone in her body. It can impact other hormones as well that control ovulation, fertilization as well as implantation making it more difficult to get pregnant naturally.
With hypothyroidism, the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough of certain important hormones and low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with the release of an egg from the ovary which impairs fertility as well. Moreover, some of the underlying causes of hypothyroidism like pituitary disorders and autoimmune diseases may impair fertility.
Treating hypothyroidism is important for women who are battling infertility. If infertility still remains after hypothyroidism has been treated, other interventions might be needed to treat the same. If you suffer from hypothyroidism and hope to get pregnant, it is important to consult a good doctor to ascertain that your hypothyroidism is under control. You can also seek help from an infertility specialist. Additionally, close monitoring of thyroid health during pregnancy can promote the normal development of the fetus and reduce the risk of miscarriage.
