What is hormone therapy and how can it treatment infertility?

If you are struggling to conceive then you can blame your hormones for it. Like a lot of times, infertility is because of hormonal imbalances and that’s where hormonal treatments come as a blessing.

What Exactly Is Hormone Therapy?

Hormone therapy is defined as a hormonal treatment that is used to treat the hormonal imbalance caused in women.

Hormonal imbalance is the main cause behind the inability to conceive.

Though hormonal changes affect both men and women, in most cases, therapy is being applied to women only.

The therapy is known to promote egg maturation which helps in triggering ovulation.

It is believed that with the help of hormone therapy, one can experience a rise in the fertilization success rate.

Though the effect of the treatment depends upon the age of the women and the extent of the hormonal disturbance, the therapy works towards improving the situation.

When hormonal therapy is required?

Women, who have been dealing with impaired egg maturation problems or suffering from impaired or no ovulation at all, required hormone therapy.

Most cases call for the imbalance between male hormones and female hormones. As a result, egg follicles either mature to a small size or do not mature at all.

Detailed diagnosis

A detailed diagnosis is done during the menstrual cycle.

During the diagnosis, the doctor keeps a check on the hormonal imbalance, keeping an eye on the frequency of the imbalance caused.

Throughout the tests, the ultrasound technique is used to monitor the causes, which is followed by the next step, i.e. beginning the therapy.

Therapy begins

With the commencement of therapy, the medicine is provided to the patient either orally in the form of tablets or through injections.

Ovulation and fertilisation

After the injections are injected or medicine is transferred into the body, it starts resulting in follicular development that helps in ovulation and fertilization.

Though interfering with the hormones in the body is quite challenging, if the process is followed precisely, it can lead to assured success in the form of ovulation.

Doctors applying the hormone therapy keep a constant watch on egg maturation and hormone levels. This is done to prevent any excessive change, which could lead to a serious health hazard.
