Typically, a woman is most fertile between the ages of 20 and 24 and will begin to decline after the age of 30. However, a number of factors can affect fertility, creating reproductive issues that make it difficult to conceive. Here are some signs that indicate you might be infertile or have fertility issues:
Abnormally Heavy Periods
Heavier-than-normal periods, or menorrhagia, is sometimes considered a sign of health issues that can cause infertility.One of the most common causes of menorrhagia is hormone imbalances that result in menstrual cycles without ovulation. And if you are unable to ovulate, then you are unable to get pregnant.
Having a period that is off by a few days every now and again isn't the biggest of deals. However, if your periods are so irregular that you are unable to track them, it could be indicative of a larger fertility problem. In fact, irregular ovulation accounts for 30 to 40% of all female infertility incidences. Luckily, infertility treatments for this particular problem exist.
No Period at All
If you stopped getting your period, then there's a good chance you're not ovulating. As we've stated, ovulation is a crucial aspect of pregnancy. A lack of ovulation indicates that you might be infertile.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, don't hesitate to contact a fertility center for consultation and treatment. There are a number of methods, approaches and treatments to infertility that have the potential to help you and your partner conceive.
