Fertility and AFS
This is Dr. Lam of drlam.com and Adrenal Fatigue Center. One of the common questions we have from adrenal fatigue sufferers is about reproductive capabilities and disruption both in men and woman. Now fertility hormones for both men and woman include primarily three hormones, estrogen, progesterone, those are for woman, as well as testosterone, that’s both women and men. Now in the case of adrenal fatigue, most men would have a testosterone level that’s either normal or low normal or in advanced cases low. Estrogen and progesterone is very different. In the woman who has estrogen problems before, this can be amplified when they have adrenal fatigue. And in normal people who have adrenal fatigue, woman-wise, the estrogen tend to go up relative to progesterone. But there are many, many variations so this generalization usually is not going to hold up unless accompanied by a very detailed clinical evaluation to make sense out of it.
