The most important red flag when speaking about fertility is usually found in both men and woman. When an individual’s body is in the “fight or flight” mode – a response of hyperarousel or acute stress it is a physiological response to a perceived harmful event, attack or threat to survival. During this survival mode the adrenal glands will produce additional cortisol and adrenaline.
The issue with this is that in order for the body to make cortisol, the body needs progesterone. Progesterone is the hormone responsible for nourishing the uterine lining in preparation for conception and during pregnancy.
Constant stress in one’s body and the demand for cortisol decreases the levels of progesterone. Low levels of progesterone interfere with the reproduction process and the lack of progesterone is a key reason why many women may have PMS, hot flashes, night sweats and many other hormonal issues.
If you are suffering from any issues of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), hot flashes, night sweats or hormonal issues you can also speak with our acupuncturist to learn how Acupuncture can help with hormonal issues in Belmar, NJ.
