Improve Your Reproductive Health Journey with 247Labkit

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 5 women in America struggle to become pregnant after a year of trying. This is understandably daunting as for some, having a baby is a major goal in life. At 247Labkit, we understand what this struggle can be like, which is why we make it easy for women to do the relevant hormone testing from the comfort of home. In this blog, we’ll discuss 247Labkit and how we can help improve a woman’s reproductive journey.

How Can Hormones Impact a Woman’s Ability to Become Pregnant?

To understand the impact of hormones on a woman’s ability to get pregnant, you must first understand which hormones are involved.

Luteinizing Hormone (LH)

The LH or luteinizing hormone is secreted by the anterior pituitary gland and is responsible for stimulating ovulation in females and androgen synthesis in males.

Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH)

The FSH or follicle-stimulating hormone is made and released by the pituitary gland, playing a crucial role in sexual development and reproducing, and affecting the function of both the ovaries and testicles.


Progesterone is responsible for preparing the endometrium for the implantation and growth of a fertilized egg. When a pregnancy doesn’t occur, the endometrium then sheds during the menstrual cycle.


Prolactin is released by the anterior pituitary gland and it is responsible for stimulating milk production after childbirth.

What if These Chemicals are Missing or Imbalanced?

Hormonal imbalance occurs when a person’s body has either too much, too little, or out-of-sync hormone production. As you can imagine, the proper balance of the hormones listed above is essential for efficient reproductive systems, including ovulation and conception. Beyond reproduction, hormone imbalances can also cause PCOS (polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and anovulation.

Loma Linda Fertility explains hormone issues are the number one cause of infertility, both in men and women. Luckily, with the right medications and lifestyle treatments, such issues are often quite treatable.

What Does Treatment Look Like?

If you discover you or your partner has a hormonal imbalance, the treatment is quite simple. To begin, your doctor will likely prescribe hormone replacement therapy. What this entails, according to the Cleveland Clinic, is either oral medication or injections. Either way, hormone replacement is the most effective form of treatment for hormone imbalances today.

Detecting Hormonal Imbalance

If you’re under 35 and healthy and have been trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant for at least a year–it’s probably time to consider hormone testing.
