Common Signs of Infertility in WomenDr. Ashish Kale
Infertility occurs when a couple is unable to conceive after at least 12 months of regular unprotected intercourse.
Signs that Shows Infertility in Women:
Age: Around the age of 32, one’s ability to conceive begins to wane.
Sub mucosal fibroids: Submucosal fibroids are benign or non-cancerous tumours that develop in the uterine muscle wall, preventing sperm from fertilizing the egg.
Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus. Endometriosis inflammation can harm sperm or eggs, preventing them from moving through the fallopian tubes and uterus. Adhesions or scar tissue may block the fallopian tubes in severe cases of endometriosis.
Tubal Infection, also known as Fallopian Tube Infection, is caused by the uncontrollable proliferation of malignant bacteria in the fallopian tubes. Streptococcus, Mycoplasma, and Staphylococcus are some of the microorganisms that cause tubal infection. Sexually transmitted illnesses (STDs) such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and others can also cause the disease.
Radiation therapy has been linked to an increased risk of infertility. Autoimmune illnesses occur when the immune system of the body attacks normal body tissues that it would otherwise overlook. Lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and other kinds of thyroiditis, as well as rheumatoid arthritis, can all impair fertility.

What are the risk factors linked to Infertility?
Women’s fertility falls as they get older.
Tobacco use: Smoking can lessen the chances of becoming pregnant. Women who smoke are more likely to have miscarriages.
Alcohol: Alcohol consumption has been linked to infertility.
Obesity: Living a sedentary lifestyle and being overweight can raise your chances of becoming infertile.
Depression and stress can have an impact on the hormones that control the reproductive cycle. Women who are struggling with these problems may not be able to ovulate regularly.
