- Thyroid health and fertility ⭐️
The thyroid gland is a small butterfly shaped organ located in the neck. It produces hormones that regulate a variety of viral functions in the body, ranging from metabolism to ovulation. Thyroid disorders can impact fertility in different ways. Those with thyroid imbalances are more likely to experience menstrual cycle disruptions, anovulation ( absence of ovulation), fertility issues and an increased risk of miscarriage or premature birth. Subclinical hypothyroidism may also impact on fertility. ‘Normal’ thresholds for thyroid hormone levels are too wide for people who are trying to get pregnant. You can check your thyroid function with us here @thefertilityHQ alongside 6 other tests which are key players in fertility. Our unique, fertility- focussed test is available to purchase!

- Exercise and Expecting?
How do we guide our pregnant patients? Exercise can be an inconsistently managed area of antenatal care. GPs are well placed to appropriately advise patients regarding safe exercise practices throughout pregnancy. As per NICE guidance 2016– Antenatal Care for uncomplicated pregnancies- ‘women should be advised that beginning or continuing a moderate course of exercise in pregnancy is not associated with adverse outcomes.’ Women should be advised about exercise including pelvic floor exercises at their booking visit and on an opportunistic basis. (1) Women with uncomplicated pregnancies should be encouraged to engage in aerobic (cardiovascular) and strength training (yoga/pilates) exercises in the pre-conceptual, antenatal and post-partum period. There are no proven risks to the foetus if it is practised safely. Moderate intensity exercise for at least 20-30 minutes on 5 days of the weeks should be the eventual goal and adjusted where medically indicated. Pelvic floor exercises are of particular importance helping in the prevention of faecal and urinary incontinence. (1) In women who have obstetric or medical issues, exercise regimes should be individualised. Medical opinion should be sought to carefully evaluate these women before making recommendations on physical activity participation during pregnancy. (2-6) Physical inactivity is the fourth-leading risk factor for early mortality worldwide. (7) In pregnancy, physical inactivity and excessive weight gain have been recognized as independent risk factors for maternal obesity and related pregnancy complications, including gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). (8-10) There is concern that regular physical activity during pregnancy may cause miscarriage, poor foetal growth, musculoskeletal injury, or premature delivery. For uncomplicated pregnancies, these concerns have not been substantiated. (2-6) The full article first published in GP Magazine can be read here

I’m in my early 30’s and working long hours in the corporate world and have been anxious about my fertility journey but didn’t really know what to do about it.

Thank you for the knowledge @TheFertilityHQ LAURA, LIMERICK Thank you so much to Roisin for all of her knowledge and support throughout this process. I decided to order a fertility test as I wanted to get a good understanding of my fertility and body. I have just turned 28 and decided that now is a great time to complete these tests in order to prepare and support my future. The test itself was so easy to complete. Roisin was amazing, I had the results within 7 days. The feedback was very detailed and easy to understand. I also completed a virtual feedback session with Roisin. It was so positive regardless of the results. It has helped my understanding and knowledge on my fertility journey and has helped figure out the next steps that I need to take. Not only was Roisin so informative to me, she also gave great information and support to my partner who also took part in the virtual feedback. I would absolutely recommend taking this fertility test as it was so easy and gave such accurate results. Thank you so much again, Roisin. JESSICA, AGED 28 I found fertilityHQ on Instagram and when I start watching their posts, I learned so much. I booked a video consultation as I already had my bloods taken. Roisin went through all my results and explained what each meant and recommended supplements that could help. I learned so much on the call from all her knowledge and experience, also she recommended a procedure for me that I had never heard of before. Would highly recommend! ANN, 38 What Happens Next?
