Infertility is a global problem with an estimated 20% of couples worldwide being affected by it. Many of these couples have no symptoms. They don’t have any reason to suspect they may have infertility until they start trying to conceive. Primary infertility means that a couple has been unable to conceive after at least one year of unprotected sexual intercourse. This can be due to the female or male partner. In many cases, the cause is unknown until you get diagnosed. However, women are the primary cause of infertility in about one-half of infertility cases. Most women who suffer from infertility do not even realize they are suffering from the condition until they try to get pregnant. Although there are many possible causes of infertility in women.  Here are some common signs of infertility in Women:


Ovulatory Problems


Lack of ovulation is a common cause of infertility in women. This type of infertility occurs when a woman’s body stops producing eggs regularly, or the eggs are not healthy enough to be fertilized. A woman’s age can also play a role in ovulation failure. The time of peak fertility in women is between 15 and 26 years of age. After that, fertility declines as ovulation becomes less regular. Ovulation problems can also be caused by a disorder in the brain or pituitary gland that controls hormone secretion or the ability of the egg itself to mature and be released, or some other problem with the reproductive system.


Abnormal Menstruation


If you have irregular periods, your actual period may appear to be normal — the amount of blood you bleed and the number of days you bleed are comparable to a typical period — but they occur at unexpected, unpredictable, or a combination of these intervals. And if you don’t get your period regularly, you may never tell when or if you’re going to ovulate which can be the major cause of infertility. Irregular menstrual cycles are a result of many factors like stress, disease, hormonal imbalance, and excessive exercise. They can also be caused by the incorrect use of birth control pills.




Endometriosis is a condition that affects many parts of the reproductive system including the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. It happens when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus causing pain and infertility issues in women. It can also affect your ability to conceive due to severe pain during intercourse and ovulation.


Problems with Fallopian Tubes


Fallopian tubes are two small tubes that play a major role in the fertility cycle. They carry an egg from the ovary to the uterus. This process is known as fertilization. If this process is not happening on time, it results in infertility in women. Any disease or abnormality which damages fallopian tubes can result in infertility.


Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)


Pelvic Inflammatory Disease is an infection of the reproductive organs caused by a sexually transmitted disease such as chlamydia or gonorrhea. PID can cause scarring or damage to the fallopian tubes, preventing them from allowing an egg to travel from the ovary to the uterus and then out of the body during a woman’s monthly period. this can cause infertility in women.



Obesity has been demonstrated to harm a woman’s fertility, creating irregular or non-existent menstruation. This can make determining when (or if) you’re ovulating more challenging, as well as lowering the chances of appropriately timing your intercourse. Getting and keeping a healthy weight lowers your risks of having irregular periods and increases your chances of success.
