Infertility is becoming a big problem today. In the WHO’s latest report, it says that one in six people in the world is affected by infertility. About 17.5 percent of the adult population is a victim of infertility. This shows that there is an urgent need to make affordable, high-quality fertility care accessible to those in need. According to new estimates, there is not much variation in the prevalence of infertility worldwide.
Thyroid disease was once a condition that primarily affected the elderly, but it is now also affecting adults. People are becoming sufferers of this disease as a result of improper diet and lifestyle choices. Due to disturbances in the thyroid, fertility in women can also be affected.
In this article, Dr. Chanchal Sharma, Director of Asha Ayurveda, will discuss the relationship between thyroid dysfunction and infertility, as well as its treatment.
Dr. Chanchal Sharma says thyroid is a unique gland in the neck that generates the hormone thyroxine. For physical activity, this hormone is crucial. However, thyroid illness is a condition brought on by this hormone when it is produced in an abnormally high or low amount in a person. Thyroid hormone overproduction in women can potentially lead to infertility.
The NIA report says 20% of women are unable to recognise the thyroid issue prior to the test. In this scenario, a woman’s infertility may be mostly caused by her thyroid. The hypothalamo-pituitary-ovarian axis and the reproductive organs may interact directly and indirectly with severe thyroid disease to cause monthly irregularities and infertility. Dr. Chanchal says hypothyroidism, or a decrease in thyroid hormone levels in the body, causes the ovulation process to be disrupted, which can lead to infertility in women. In addition to this, hypothyroidism also causes reduced progesterone production in the ovaries, which makes pregnancy difficult.
Dr. Chanchal says that thyroid plays an important role in pregnancy. Uncontrolled hyperthyroidism increases the risk of miscarriage in early pregnancy in women. If overactive thyroid ie hyperthyroidism is not treated properly, then women may face difficulties in conceiving. Apart from this, complications like high blood pressure, premature delivery, stunted growth of the baby can occur in pregnant women due to hyperthyroidism after conception.
In allopathic treatment, IVF is emphasized to conceive in the thyroid. But according to Dr. Chanchal Sharma, ayurveda can also promote women’s natural, risk-free, and side effect free health in addition to allopathic medicine.
Every woman’s dream is to have a child, however due to a variety of issues, according to Dr. Chanchal Sharma of Asha Ayurveda, occasionally this wish cannot be realized. Aasha Ayurveda uses the panchkarma process and ayurveda medicine to treat women in their wombs. Through a catheter, Ayurvedic drugs and oil are injected into the woman’s uterus during the Uttar Basti therapy of the Panchakarma procedure. This approach can treat hormonal imbalance, IVF failure, hydrosalpinx, recurrent urinary tract infections, uterine fibroids, PCOD, PCOS, low AMH, uterine fibroids, endometrium, irregular periods, tubal blockage and any other complications in pregnancy..
In ayurveda, doctors take the time to learn about your medical history, including thyroid disease and pregnancy complications, your way of daily life, and your eating habits in order to create a treatment plan that is personalized for your individual requirements. In order to ensure that you reach peak health, we also offer continuing support and guidance throughout your treatment.
According to Dr. Chanchal Sharma, for those women who continue to experience pain even after pricey IVF treatment, Ayurvedic medicine is a God’s blessing. The greatest part about ayurvedic treatment is that it is affordable and has a high success rate.
