Infertility Is a Symptom, Not a Diagnosis

You are struggling to conceive. A doctor may have deemed you infertile or unlikely to ever conceive naturally. You may have even been told you have unexplained infertility. But the reality is that infertility is a symptom, not a diagnosis. If you are having difficulty conceiving, there is something going on with your body that’s getting in the way.

Is Your Body Hiding a Chronic Condition?

When your body is fighting a chronic condition, the reproductive organs can easily become a low priority. An undiagnosed condition is even worse because you may feel good and take good care of yourself and be baffled about your inability to conceive – and that is one of the toughest pills to swallow.

Some of the most common undiagnosed problems that affect fertility include:

  • Insufficient hormone production: If the ovaries and adrenal glands do not produce sufficient hormones, or the pituitary gland is also underperforming, a healthy hormonal response to maximize fertility potential will be absent. Hormone balancing among all the glands is also critical to fertility.
  • Blood sugar imbalance: When a woman has hypoglycemia (insufficient glucose) her reproductive system will not have enough cellular energy to support a healthy fertility response. Hyperglycemia (too much glucose) contributes to pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a major cause of infertility.
  • Unhealthy gut: The trillions of microorganisms that live in the digestive tract – bacteria, yeasts, and viruses – play an important role in maintaining healthy, functional hormonal balance. Without a healthy gut microbiome, a woman cannot maximize her fertility potential.
  • Thyroid problems: Thyroid dysfunction can come from over- or under-production of thyroid hormones or the body’s inability to convert or utilize thyroid hormones properly. Issues like these can cause hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and side effects like autoimmune diseases, stress, inflammation, intolerances, deficiencies, and estrogen complications. Thyroid disorders may suppress ovulation.
