Inability for a woman to get pregnant (by a viable man) is an ever-increasing problem. Many women do not ovulate even though they have what appears to be a regular period. The most common answer to this issue is a low progesterone level, which can be plotted and confirmed throughout the cycle through a female hormone panel lab test. A low thyroid level can also be the problem. The balance of all the hormones (bringing the adrenal glands into the picture), is most important. Essential fatty acid imbalances due to a lack of omega 3 or 6 fats and a diet containing partially hydrogenated fats is also an issue to investigate. This usually goes along with a diet containing too many carbohydrates, especially those refined, which also often results in ovarian cysts. Although there are a lot of drugs and procedures available today to induce pregnancy, and sometimes these are necessary, these hormonal and nutritional issues are frequently overlooked. Remember, getting pregnant is the first step. Sustaining a healthy pregnancy, delivering a healthy child and being a healthy mom is going to be dependent on how well you take care of yourself. So looking into all this now is absolutely necessary no matter how you look at it.
