Infertility Warning Signs For Female And Male


Infertility is when you cannot get pregnant after having unprotected, regular sex for six months to one year, depending on your age. The main symptom of infertility is not getting pregnant. You may not have or notice any other 
symptoms. Many health conditions can make it hard to get pregnant. Here are some infertility warning signs for female and male.

Infertility Symptoms in Women
In women, changes in the menstrual cycle and ovulation may be a symptom of a disease related to infertility. Symptoms include:

-Abnormal periods. Bleeding is heavier or lighter than usual.
-Irregular periods. The number of days in between each period varies each month.
-No periods. You have never had a period, or periods suddenly stop.
-Painful periods. Back pain, pelvic pain, and cramping may happen.
Hormonal Imbalance
You may not be getting pregnant because your body isn't going through the usual hormone changes that lead to the release of an egg from the ovary and the thickening of the lining of the uterus. In this case, symptoms can also include:

-Skin changes, including more acne
-Changes in sex drive and desire
-Dark hair growth on the lips, chest, and chin
-Loss of hair or thinning hair
-Weight gain

Being Over 30
Even though this may not directly stand in the way of your having a baby, your chances of conceiving start to decrease around 30, as older eggs are not fertilized as easily.

-Pain during sex


Infertility Symptoms in Men
We tend to think that if a couple is not getting pregnant there must be a problem with the female partner. In reality, there is just as much of a chance that the problem is with the male partner or even both partners. This is why it is always a good idea to have both partners get infertility testing done. Here are symptoms.

-Changes in hair growth
-Changes in sexual desire
-Pain, lump, or swelling in the testicles
-Problems with erections and ejaculation
-Small, firm testicles


Sperm quality and quantity
Most common causes of male infertility are related to sperm health. The following sperm-related issues can affect a man's fertility, making it harder for a couple to get pregnant. 

-Abnormally shaped sperm
-Sperm with poor motility
-Poor sperm quality
-Sperm that cannot attach the head to egg
-Sperm that cannot penetrate the egg


Lifestyle habits lead to male infertility
Certain lifestyle habits can also affect male infertility, including:

-Excessive alcohol consumption
-Drug use
-Being overweight or obese
-Poor diet

Since few of the mentioned traits are quite common today, It is important to talk to your doctor about options specific to your needs.
