The reproductive axis, particularly in women, is vulnerable to disruption from environmental influences and illness. Endocrine disorders not involving the gonads strongly influence reproductive function. Diseases of the pituitary, adrenal, and thyroid can exert deleterious effects on ovulation, sex steroid production, implantation, and pregnancy outcomes. This chapter will review the presenting features, evaluation, and treatment of major endocrine disorders that affect reproduction, with emphasis on mechanisms that impair fertility.
