Hormones give orders to your cells to carry out specific actions. They help your body parts function in a coordinated manner.
Hormones are the operators of human reproduction, responsible for sexual development and controlling the menstrual cycle. The main reproductive hormones are estrogen and testosterone.
There are other hormones involved in the menstrual cycle, they include:
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) – causes maturation of an egg in the ovary.
Luteinizing hormone (LH) – stimulates the release of the egg.
Oestrogen and progesterone – are involved in maintaining the lining of the uterus.
Estrogen causes eggs to mature in ovaries once a girl reaches puberty. These eggs are then released at regular intervals during the menstrual cycle. In males, testosterone stimulates sperm production.
When these reproductive hormones do not function as they should, fertility problems can occur, then the need for you to assist your fertility.
Beautifully, you can assist your fertility by balancing your hormones naturally. Now, let’s look at how to balance your hormones and get pregnant naturally.
