Fertility Benefits of Hypothyroidism Hormone Replacement Therapy

July 2, 2020 0

Thyroid hormone replacement therapy has become the most common and reliable treatment of hypothyroidism. Treating infertility – including recurrent miscarriage – is benefited through the use of hormone replacement therapy. The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland found in the lower part of your neck. This gland plays a major role in correctly regulating your metabolism and energy.

Hypothyroidism and the Thyroid Gland

The pituitary gland secretes a thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) that triggers the thyroid to make and release T3 and T4 hormones.

  • Primary hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid doesn’t make enough T3 and T4 despite being instructed to do so by the pituitary gland.
  • Secondary hypothyroidism occurs when there’s too little TSH stimulating the thyroid gland.
