Title: Reproductive Endocrinology - IVFLA Fertility Clinic

Reproductive Endocrinology
Reproductive endocrinology is a subspecialty of
obstetrics and gynecology that addresses hormonal
functioning as it relates to reproduction and
infertility. In addition to treating infertility
issues, reproductive endocrinologists are trained
to evaluate and treat other hormonal
Imbalances of Reproductive Hormones
Subnormal or fluctuating levels of reproductive
hormones that may include- Mood swings
Metabolic abnormalities Sexual dysfunction
Menopausal symptoms Hirsutism Low sperm
count Menstrual abnormalities Ovulation
problems Polycystic ovary syndrome
Recurrent miscarriages
Reproductive Endocrinology Treatments
Reproductive endocrinology treatments focus on
correcting hormonal imbalances at the root of
many health and fertility issues. Reproductive
endocrinologists can assist patients with a
number of condition, both to increase fertility
and to restore health and well-being.
Ovulation Induction
Ovulation induction is a process designed to
increase the chances of conception by stimulating
egg production. To this end, patients are
administered hormones either orally or through
injection. Ovulation induction is used to
increase fertility using a variety of
reproductive methods including sexual
intercourse, intrauterine insemination, in vitro
fertilization, gestational surrogacy or other
assisted reproductive technologies.
Menstrual Irregularities
Irregular menstruation, abnormal uterine
bleeding, or progesterone problems can also be
treated by administration of hormones. Diagnostic
tests are used to determine whether hormones
alone will be helpful or whether other treatment
methods such as surgery, may be necessary. Birth
control pills are commonly prescribed to treat
menstrual irregularities.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most
common endocrine disorder among women in their
reproductive years caused by an imbalance of
hormones in the ovaries. It is characterized by a
chronic inability to ovulate and elevate male
hormones. Symptoms include infrequent or absent
ovulations or menstrual periods, excess facial or
body hair, male pattern baldness, acne and
Other Hormone Irregularities
Reproductive endocrinologists are also able to
treat other conditions either related to hormone
imbalances or controlled through hormone
administration. These professionals may prescribe
and monitor hormones to treat fibroids, Cushings
syndrome, thyroid dysfunction and other
conditions in which hormones play a significant
role. Consultation with a reproductive
endocrinologist can be a valuable first step
toward treatment of fertility issues.
