Main Article Content

О.О. Коrytko


In the lecture the questions of endocrine diseases influence on the reproductive system functioning are being considered. The reproductive system of woman is analyzed as a complex of interdependent structural elements: hypothalamus, pituitary organ, ovaries, organs-targets and other endocrine organs that provide realization of genesis function. During pregnancy, hormone metabolism changes that is an important factor for the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine diseases in pregnant women and women planning to become pregnant. It is shown that subclinical endocrine disorder is a factor reducing the normal hormonal functional response necessary for the adequate development of induced pregnancy. Therefore, in any violations of reproductive function (infertility, miscarriage), it is necessary to evaluate functioning of endocrine system, and pregnancy in women with endocrine pathology requires a significant correction of the conducted therapy.
