Chiropractic and Fertility
It is estimated that up to 12 percent of women face challenges getting pregnant. In 2018, nearly seven million men and women in the usa sought help through assisted fertility treatment, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). The price of this treatment averages $17,000usd with an average success rate of less than thirty-three percent.

The hypothalamus regulates the secretion of Gonadotropin-releasing hormone. This in turn determines the relative amounts of follicle stimulating hormone and leuteinizing hormone that the pituitary gland secretes.
