Hormones During Pregnancy 




The changes in hormone levels in pregnant women are truly profound.  Most men find it difficult to fully comprehend what is causing all these changes from mood

swings to constipation, extra sleep to food cravings.


Quite simply, it is the effect of various hormones that is the main contributor to these changes in your partner, but more than that, it's these very same hormone changes that enable her to carry the baby for nine months and assist it to develop.


In a previous article, we discussed in detail the role of the vital hormone b-HCG (beta Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone) during pregnancy, then in another issue we discussed the effects of the hormones produced in the pituitary gland, LH (lutenising hormone) and FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) during the ovulation process.
