Signs of Infertility

Learn Grow & Be Strong

Have you ever considered what the primary signs of infertility in a human being are? We should be aware of the indications of infertility and that too, as early as possible. Signs of infertility can become apparent in several ways, including instinctive and cultural factors, irregular behavior of individuals while having a sexual union, malnutrition, a depressed mental condition, endocrinology factors, and the current health condition of persons. The overall general lifestyle, emotional quotients, financial issues as well as time represent pointers to infertility as well. In this context, it is important to distinguish between infertility and impotency. The factors mentioned above can result in infertility in a man or a lady, in case any of the former stops working normally.

In cases where a male has full potency, his female partner can become pregnant during the menstruation cycle of the latter. However, not many are aware that men too have hormonal cycles. What’s more, while the cycle of ladies cover a 28-day period, a fixed tab cannot be put on the male cycle. Researches show that the quality of the male sperm can go down, not at all matching with his hormone cycle, although he can release sperms whenever he wishes to do so. The lower sperm quality, in turn, has a negative impact on a man’s fertility, and can diminish his ability to impregnate. Signs of infertility, in both men and women, can become more apparent with advancement of their age.

Discourses on the many signs of infertility can often be confusing. Here, we would be discussing these issues in a clearer manner. Fertility of humans is not our focus here. In females, the single most important sign of her being infertile is an irregular pattern of her periods. However, it has to be kept in mind that, while irregular menstrual cycles do indicate infertility, they can also act as signs of other health hazards.

If a lady does not have the ideally correct body weight, her fertility is likely to go down. Infertility can be a problem faced by both overweight as well as grossly underweight women. The fetus needs to be nursed properly during pregnancy. If the hip region of a woman is too narrow, this task becomes difficult, and her ability to conceive babies suffers. The balance of hormones can also receive a jolt in case a proper nutrition-rich diet is not adopted.
