      Infertility and Hormone Therapy

      Infertility is a problem experienced by many couples, and it can cause a lot of stress and frustration. Inability to have children can cause tension within any marriage or relationship, and many people don?t know where to turn for a solution. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 12 percent of women and 7.5 percent of men have reported experiencing infertility. Many couples have turned to hormone therapy for help solving this problem, and many of them were able to have children as a result. But before considering which option is best, it?s important to understand the causes of infertility for both men and women.


      When looking for a solution to the inability to have children, it?s vital to learn and understand why the problem is occurring in the first place. Issues with fertility often result from an imbalance in sex hormones in the body. For women, these problems become more prevalent between the ages of 30 and 40.

      If a woman is noticing decreased energy levels or unexplained weight gain in addition to difficulty conceiving, then a hormonal imbalance is likely to blame. Men often experience similar problems but also notice hair loss and libido changes. Although frustrating, these problems can be addressed with a proper treatment plan.

      Treatment Options

      When a hormonal imbalance is suspected to be the root of the issue, the first step is to verify whether an imbalance is present. Next, it?s important to address an individual?s diet and lifestyle choices. Poor eating habits can further complicate the situation. In addition to healthy eating, hormone therapy can help improve a couple?s odds of having children.

      For women, hormone therapy often involves a treatment plan that promotes and regulates healthy ovulation. When men are seeking hormonal therapy, they are often given treatments that promote testosterone production and regulation. After undergoing a proper hormonal therapy treatment plan, many couples often report they have successfully conceived.

      Final Thoughts

      Although annoying and stressful, the inability to have children is often treatable with an effective hormone treatment plan that promotes and regulates the body?s production of sex hormones. When a couple is not able to conceive for more than a year, it?s important for them to seek treatment right away so that they can identify and reverse the problem.

      Many people believe problems with conception are only found in women, which is untrue. It?s important for both partners to seek an evaluation so that the odds of finding a workable solution can be optimized.
