Inflammation is a normal human response to injury or infection. Our immune system will react to this inflammation with redness, swelling, a feeling of heat and pain to these injuries or infections.
It’s normal for our bodies to have these reactions. A typical response is for our bodies to produce an anti-inflammatory response to help heal the injury or infection.
In fact, acute inflammation is a normal part of the female reproductive system. Throughout our menstrual cycles, egg maturation and ovulation, there are acute inflammatory responses throughout.
However, when it goes beyond acute inflammation to chronic inflammation, that is where the problem begins.
How Does Inflammation Affect Fertility?
Chronic inflammation exists when the acute inflammatory response is not met with the opposing anti-inflammatory response.
This sort of chronic inflammation can be found in many conditions associated with infertility.
Conditions known to cause female infertility such as endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), premature ovarian failure, and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) are all associated with chronic inflammation.
Inflammation can affect ovulation, hormone production, and both egg and sperm quality.
Inflammation is also known to impact endometrial receptivity, possibly impacting the ability for an embryo to implant.
It creates a hostile environment that is not ideal for sustained pregnancy.
Though some of these conditions can be more easily diagnosed, more often than not they are overlooked.
Endometriosis is often a silent disease.
Often times, women have severe cases that don’t experience common symptoms. Or, if they do experience these symptoms, they are often met with doctors who misdiagnose or prescribe birth control as treatment rather, further masking the underlying issue without corrective treatment.
PCOS is another disease that can parade as other conditions and often times go undiagnosed.
There are some symptoms you can look for that will indicate possible chronic inflammation.
If you are experiencing any of these and having trouble getting pregnant, please talk to your doctor immediately.
This is not something you want to ignore.
These signs may include (but are not limited to): acid reflux or heartburn, symptoms of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), migraines or tension headaches, redness or swelling anywhere on your body, chronic acne, allergies, chronically swollen lymph nodes, rosacea, chronic congestion or eczema.
Can This Inflammation be Reversed?
I’ve written a few articles on natural anti-inflammatories, but there is so much more you can do.
Diet is a very important factor.
There are many foods and supplements that you can take to help reduce inflammation and aid your body in properly responding to the inflammation that is presented from these conditions.
Of course, proper recognition and subsequent treatment is also extremely important.
Knowing the signs of inflammation and possible conditions that may affect fertility are the first step in treating them.
As mentioned before, talk to your doctor if you suspect any of these conditions to be a problem for you or if you believe you may be suffering from chronic inflammation.
Recognizing the possible issues and taking strides to make changes will significantly help.
I’ll be writing about more foods and supplements you can take to reduce inflammation, so keep an eye out!
