There are crucial relationships between the thyroid gland and the reproductive/endocrine systems in males and females.

In females, thyroid imbalances  lead to  pituitary-gonadal dysfunctions which include alterations in FSH and LH hormone coordination and release, ovarian FSH receptor site sensitivity, and peripheral progesterone receptor sensitivity. These imbalances lead to miscarriages, ovarian cysts, infertility,  migraines, weight gain, mood disorders, depression, and abnormal menstrual cycles. Sometimes the endocrine symptoms are so pronounced that the thyroid culprit is overlooked. Conversely, the use of synthetic hormones such as birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy (HRT), in addition to insulin surges and stress responses, lead to abnormal spikes of hormones such as estrogen, cortisol, and testosterone, which disrupts health thyroid function.

In males, thyroid imbalances can lead to pronounced  male hormone imbalances which include decreased testosterone, altered pituitary-gonadalfunction, obesity, exhaustion, cognitive decline, erectile dysfunction, and depression.  This clinical presentation will largely be ignored because the male hormone imbalances will obscure the thyroid culprit. Many men start taking synthetic testosterone which further disrupts thyroid metabolism.
