Reproductive hormones play important roles in female fertility. Imbalance in these hormones, for instance caused by PCOS, can result in irregular menstrual cycles and problems with ovulation, which in turn affects fertility. Every woman is born with a specific number of eggs in her ovaries, but with age the number of eggs (also called the ovarian reserve), decreases. The ability of the ovaries to produce the female hormone oestradiol also decreases and level of the stimulatory hormone FSH increases.

The thyroid is a gland located in the neck that produces hormones that regulates the metabolism, how we use and store energy. The thyroid profile is used to evaluate thyroid function to diagnose and control hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction not only makes it difficult to conceive, but can also affect the development of the unborn baby during pregnancy itself, increasing the risk for miscarriage.

Diabetes occurs when the body’s ability to regulate the amount of blood sugar (glucose) is impaired. In type 1 diabetes the body is no longer able to produce insulin, and in the more common type 2 (which occurs more frequently with age) the body is no longer sensitive to its action. Women with elevated blood sugar levels are at greater risk of fertility challenges. Elevated blood sugar is often caused by insulin resistance, when the cells in the body are no longer able to adequately respond to the blood sugar lowering hormone insulin. This can be related to obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the most common female reproductive disorder, affecting around 10% of women. Having elevated blood sugar already before pregnancy can increase the risk of developing gestational diabetes during pregnancy which is risky for both the mother and the baby. It is therefore important to achieve a good blood sugar level before pregnancy by making healthy lifestyle choices.
Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients that are required by the body to work properly and stay healthy. There are 13 main types of vitamins – such as folate, and a number of minerals such as iron. The importance of folate for pregnancy is well known, but many other vitamins and minerals also affect fertilty and pregnancy. Iron deficiency can impair ovulation, making it more difficult to conceive. Ensuring that you have adequate iron stores before pregnancy is also important because iron is needed to support the growing baby, and make it possible for the baby to produce red blood cells. Low vitamin B12 levels have also been linked to fertility problems and pregnancy complications in studies. It is especially important for vegetarians and vegans to check their vitamin B12 levels as vitamin B12 is exclusively found in animal-derived products.

There are 3 main types of cells in the blood – platelets (important for stopping bleeding), white cells (to fight infection) and red cells (carries oxygen around the body). A full blood count is a good baseline test that can help diagnose a variety of conditions that can affect fertility, such as anaemia, infections and other blood disorders.
