FERTILITY: The importance of hormonal balance for women
When women and men suffer from hormonal imbalances, the ability to conceive can become extremely difficult. If a woman is having issues with fertility, one common reason could be related to the imbalance of the hormone progesterone. When a woman’s progesterone is too low, this can cause a short luteal phase. The luteal phase is the length of time between ovulation and the start of the menstrual period. When a woman has a short luteal phase, fertilized eggs are unable to attach to the uterus and a miscarriage can occur. The estrogen hormone is also extremely important in female reproduction. If a woman does not enough estrogen in the body, she can be prevented from ovulating. If a woman has too much estrogen in the body, irregular periods occur, which also makes it difficult for a woman to get pregnant.
The hormone prolactin is responsible for stimulating the hormones to start the ovulation process and permit eggs to grow and mature into healthy eggs. When a woman’s prolactin balance is out of sync her ability to conceive becomes difficult. The luteinizing hormone, also known as the LH hormone stimulates the pituitary gland and is responsible for regulating periods and the ovulation process. The LH hormone also communicates to the ovary to release a mature egg. The imbalance of the LH hormone can affect the viability of eggs in the body and may lead to irregular periods. Proper hormone balance of progesterone, estrogen, prolactin and the luteinizing hormone is vital if you are trying to conceive. The Te de la Familia fertility program contains natural herbs for fertility and supports the hormones in a woman’s body to jump-start the reproductive process.
FERTILITY: The importance of hormonal balance men
Hormone balance in men is also vital to maintain healthy testosterone and sperm count levels. Low testosterone levels in men can create problems with fertility. Testosterone is the most significant male hormone which helps maintain sex drive and sperm production. A balanced Luteinizing Hormone also is known as the LH hormone produced by the pituitary gland stimulates testicles to produce testosterone. The pituitary gland controls testosterone production by the testes where the highest levels of the hormones are produced. The Follicle Stimulating Hormone also know as FSH is also produced by the pituitary gland and stimulates the testicles to produce sperm. Stimulation and the proper balance of hormones affecting the testicles are required to produce and create high sperm count levels. Low sperm count can stand in the way of fertility and reproduction.
The pituitary gland needs to produce enough LH to increase testosterone production which then stimulates sperm production. Estrogen imbalance due to excessive estrogen can also affect the pituitary gland causing abnormal stimulation to the testicle for sperm and testosterone production. High estrogen levels are generally detected in obese men, therefore a healthy fertility diet can be helpful in balancing high estrogen levels because fatty diets produce and store estrogen. Hormone balance in men is necessary to improve testosterone levels and produce healthy sperm counts. Maximo herbal supplements are herbs for fertility for men and herbs to boost fertility.
