It may surprise many but getting pregnant is a fairly complex process! There is a wide range of internal factors that determine a woman’s ability to conceive, ranging from her reproductive health to the man’s sperm count. At times, the symptoms of infertility are clear. However, in order to guide you better and suggest the right infertility treatment (if required), a doctor may recommend an endoscopic test.
One of the most common signs of infertility in young women is the inability to ovulate. This issue affects nearly 40% of women with fertility issues. This inability may be the result of gynaecological conditions or medical conditions in the ovary such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) or Primary Ovarian Inefficiency (POI).
Trouble conceiving may also be the result of a diminished ovarian reserve, which is the low number of eggs in the woman’s ovaries.
Another common sign that you should be aware of issues in the menstrual cycle. Painful period or irregular periods can lead to female infertility and should be medically reviewed.
In some cases, the reproductive system may be suffering from some form of damage, like the presence of abnormal tissue in the fallopian tubes or within the uterus. A common symptom for this may be pain during sex.
Sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia can also cause complications like pelvic inflammatory disease and ultimately, infertility. It’s important to get checked if symptoms show and take the right measures to recover.
Hormone imbalances in the female body could indicate potential issues in fertility. Be sure to check with your doctor if you are experiencing skin issues, facial hair growth, thinning hair or sudden weight gain.
It’s common for couples to experience issues with infertility. Many couples have no symptoms and have nothing to suspect until they actually start trying. Fortunately, there is a large number of proven, safe and effective treatments, such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) that can be carried out to overcome infertility issues and conceive.
