5 Signs Of Infertility In Women

If you have been trying and failing to conceive for quite some time, you or your partner may have fertility issues that need to be addressed.

Here we look at the most common reasons behind infertility in women.

Irregular Periods/PCOS

Irregular periods happen due to irregular ovulation and that is the number one cause of infertility in women. Irregular periods could also happen because of ovarian cysts that grow on or within the ovaries and prevent ovulation. This condition is known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Common signs of PCOS include infrequent periods, excess hair growth, acne and obesity.

Being over 30

Your fertility decreases as you get older and drops dramatically after you turn 35.

Uterine Fibroids

Many women have benign tumours on the walls of the uterus, but sometimes these tumours can block the fallopian tubes leading to infertility. This issue can be rectified with a myomectomy surgery.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

PID is an infection caused by sexually transmitted bacteria. The good news? It's treatable with antibiotics.

Scar Tissue

A pelvic infection can block fallopian tubes leading to infertility. A laparoscopic surgery can rectify the issue.
