Hormone imbalances occur when you have too much or too little of a certain hormone/s. Hormones help control many of the body’s major processes and when they are imbalanced, even in small amounts, can cause serious effects throughout the body. Hormones play an integral role in overall health as well as influencing metabolism and reproduction. This results in a broad range of symptoms and signs when they are out of balance. And hormone imbalances can affect both men and women.
Diet, lack of sleep and stress can all affect hormone levels and whether or not they are in balance. Excessive stress can lead to the release of too much cortisol which can cause chemical changes in the body and divert blood away from the internal organs, including the reproductive organs which could potentially affect the ability to get pregnant. The two most common hormonal issues in women that are linked to infertility are:
1. Ovulatory Dysfunction
2. Short Luteal Phase
And in men the most common sign of a hormonal imbalance that affects fertility is erectile dysfunction.
Acupuncture has been shown to offset the effects of stress on reproductive hormones, increase blood flow to the reproductive organs and regulate the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis to improve chances of conceiving.
