Thyroid malfunction causes delay in sexual maturity among teens and infertility

The thyroid gland is located near the front of the throat, just below the voice box and just above the collar bones.
Every cell in the body depends upon thyroid hormones for regulation of the body’s metabolism, blood calcium levels, energy production, fat metabolism, oxygen utilization, balance of other hormones and weight maintenance.
Study has shown that, Hypothyroidism (thyroid underactive) is one of the things responsible for a lady to clock 20 years plus and still cannot menstruate. It is responsible for low production of sex hormone binding globulin, estrogen dominance, progesterone deficiency, all of which interfere with proper reproductive hormone balance.
. In children and teens, the condition is associated with a delay in reaching sexual maturity, according to published reports.
In adult women, hypothyroidism is linked with menstrual problems and a lack of ovulation in some cases. The researchers in the study also noted that thyroid disease is associated with an increased risk of problems during pregnancy, including miscarriages, preeclampsia, poor fetal growth, premature birth and stillbirth.
This can be corrected, all you need to do, is to visit a specialist doctor for examination.
