Fertility and Fibromyalgia

Wednesday 1 July 2009

PregnancyPlanet Thrive's vitality 101: cfs and fibromyalgia solutions section recently had a question about possible fertility problems for people with Fibromyalgia.

ME/CFS specialist Dr Jacob Teitelbaum answers…

Are fertility problems more prevalent with FM?

Dear Dr. T,
Are fertility problems more likely to occur with fibromyalgia than in the general population?

Dr. Teitelbaum's response:
Although infertility is not a significant problem, I do find it to be more frequent in fibromyalgia than in the general population. On the other hand, when the nutritional deficiencies (especially iron) and subclinical hypothyroidism are treated, the infertility problems often resolve (as is also seen in the non-fibromyalgia general population).

The pregnancy question above is just one of many that Dr Teitelbaum answers on the vitality 101: cfs and fibromyalgia solutions page.
