some thyroid imbalances

What is thyroid imbalance?

Let’s have a crash course in thyroid physiology.

The thing to note here is TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is released by the pituitary>> It’s what is telling the thyroid to MAKE thyroid hormone. “Normal” TSH really tells us nothing about how the thyroid is actually functioning in making the hormones. Secondarily, the thyroid hormone that is produced, T4, is inactive. It needs to be converted to T3 to be utilized in most places in the body. The ovaries are special, and need T3 to be converted to T2 to be utilized effectively! So, thyroid hormones are essential for fertility. Optimal thyroid function is helpful in regulating and optimizing ovulation and menstruation. Once pregnant, thyroid hormones are responsible for the growth and development of the baby.

Additionally, if there are antibodies to the thyroid present, the person can have all the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction without any abnormalities on lab testing.

Another layer of complexity here… all your labs can look normal and you may still have thyroid dysfunction! Why? There is an aspect of metabolism reflected in body temperatures that is sometimes not reflected by labs.

All this to say, don’t settle for “normal” on labs, especially when it comes to your thyroid.

The good news: if your thyroid is part of the problem, optimizing it’s function will give your fertility a boost!

How does this affect fertility?

Whether it’s low or hyper thyroid function, the affect on fertility is pretty similar:

  • Menstrual Irregularities: Women with hypothyroidism may experience heavy, irregular, or prolonged menstrual periods, which can lead to difficulties in timing intercourse for conception.

  • Ovulatory Dysfunction: Thyroid hormones influence the maturation and release of the egg during the menstrual cycle. Hypothyroidism can lead to anovulation (lack of ovulation), which is a common cause of infertility.

  • Luteal Phase Defect: Adequate thyroid hormone levels are necessary for a proper luteal phase—the period between ovulation and the start of the menstrual period. A luteal phase defect can prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg or increase the risk of early miscarriage.

  • Elevated Prolactin Levels: Low thyroid function can lead to increased levels of the hormone prolactin, which may impair fertility by interfering with ovulation.

  • Increased Risk of Miscarriage: Hypothyroidism, especially when undiagnosed or improperly managed, is associated with a higher risk of miscarriage.
