Infertility, for a married couple can be the root of many problems
between the couple. Sometimes these problems can even lead to the couple
divorced. Usually, after a year of unprotected intercourse without
success raises the first alarm among many other signs of infertility.
However, before consulting a doctor because of infertility, a couple
also has to eliminate other factors that may be responsible for taking
the baby without success. One factor may be incorrect at the time of
sex. To be productive, intercourse should occur at the time of
ovulation. Moreover, during this period more than an attempt to take the
baby must be done to increase the likelihood of conception.
Recognizing the signs of infertility greatly increase the possibility
earlier that the couple is dealing with the causes success. In women, irregular menstrual cycle
is perhaps the most obvious of the signs of infertility. Irregular
menstrual cycles are warnings of problems with ovulation. If the cycle
is too long (over 35 days) or very short (less than 24 days) is
recommended to seek medical advice. Moreover, during the menstrual
period if the bleeding is heavy, incredibly light, or comes with severe
stomach pain could also reveal fertility problems.
Women who are overweight or underweight, as well as athletes involved
in strenuous physical exercise may also fall victim to infertility. If a
woman has had recurrent miscarriages, may also be taken as one of the
signs of infertility. Despite the fact that miscarriages are not
uncommon, doctors begin to suspect infertility after three successive
miscarriages. Physical abnormalities such as endometriosis, fibroids and
pelvic inflammatory disease can also greatly contribute to infertility in women.
Only 40% - 50% of infertility problems are caused by female factors
mentioned above. 30% - 40% of infertility problems are caused by male
factors, such as retrograde ejaculation, impotence, hormonal imbalance,
diseases like mumps, and decreased sperm count. The balance of 10% - 30%
of infertility signs from both sides. Prolonged use of alcohol or
drugs, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), age (35 years or more) treatments for cancer and other chronic diseases are causes of infertility.
The signs of infertility can be treated successfully with a variety of
ways thanks to new advances in medicine. Both psychological and physical
therapy when given for infertility treatment.
The spectrum of physical treatments for signs of infertility ranges
from treatment to improve ovulation sophisticated procedures, such as in
vitro fertilization. Psychological treatments include advising and
instructing the couple to be productive sex. The prevention of the
symptoms of infertility is as important as being diagnosed and
undergoing treatment. Engaging in safe sex can significantly reduce the
risk of infertility associated with sexually transmitted diseases.
