Hormonal Support Q & A

What are hormones?

Hormones act as messengers ins

What are hormones?

Hormones act as messengers inside your body. They’re produced by glands throughout your body, and they control functions like metabolism and reproduction.


There are many different hormones that affect fertility, but some are more integral than others. If you’re experiencing infertility, there is a chance hormones are the cause. 


The hormones directly related to fertility are:


  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
  • Anti Müllerian hormone (AMH)
  • Luteinizing hormone (LH)
  • Progesterone
  • Prolactin


If you have a hormonal imbalance, one or many biological processes that are essential for reproduction could be affected. Hormonal imbalance can make it difficult to conceive or difficult to maintain a healthy pregnancy to full term.

How do hormones affect fertility?

Ovarian follicles inside your ovaries are where immature eggs, known as oocytes, are stored. AMH is produced by ovarian follicles and acts as a predictor of how many eggs your body has. FSH is the hormone that regulates your menstrual cycle and encourages egg maturation.


LH is the hormone that triggers ovulation. You are at your most fertile when you’re ovulating, and LH imbalance can cause irregular ovulation and infertility. 


Progesterone and prolactin are two hormones directly related to pregnancy. Prolactin imbalance can cause irregular menstruation, while progesterone imbalance might cause recurrent miscarriage.

What can I expect with hormonal support?

Dr. Rubal applies her extensive knowledge to create a hormonal support plan that fits your needs. She talks with each couple to assess their medical history, experience with infertility, and goals before recommending a hormonal support treatment plan.


Hormone therapy can be a delicate balance, but when utilized thoughtfully, it can significantly improve your chances of getting pregnant. 


Dr. Rubal leverages evidence-based complementary medicine alongside her educational background to develop your personalized hormone therapy plan.

Oral medication like clomiphene can stimulate your body to regulate FSH and LH, helping you achieve more regular ovulation. For some women, clomiphene is enough to achieve pregnancy.

Injectable treatments might be a good option for you if oral medication doesn’t effectively regulate hormones. There are a number of combinations of hormone injections aimed at creating hormonal balance to boost fertility.
