The final indicator of infertility is the inability to conceive a child despite multiple attempts over the span of six months to a year. Infertility affects more women than people think. In the Philippines alone, 1 in ten women is infertile. The country’s overall infertility rate stands at 7.90% based on a study conducted by market research company Synovate, cited by Dr. Virgilio M. Novero, Jr., in a forum on fertility on Sept. 8. 2004.
If you are constantly experiencing any of or a combination of these signs and symptoms and you’re trying to conceive a child, it’s best you visit our specialists on in vitro fertilization in Davao to verify the state of your fertility.
Re-occurring pain during sexual intercourse
It’s not uncommon to experience pain sometimes during sexual intercourse; however, if it’s consistently an issue, it could be indicative of underlying reproductive health issues such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids. Both of which are directly linked to infertility.
Irregular periods or no periods
Sometimes, irregularities in the schedule of your monthly periods could be the result of hormonal imbalance due to stress, and other times, it’s the under-production of eggs by the ovaries. If your menstrual cycles fail to regulate themselves, it’s a sign that you should consult with a fertility specialist. Also, if you notice strangely colored period blood or foul-smelling discharge, this could be an issue.
All women experience some sort of hormonal change over several periods in their lifetime, primarily during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause. But if you notice symptoms such as skin issues, reduced sex drive, facial hair growth, thinning hair, and/or weight gain, then this may pose issues regarding your fertility.
Women who suffer from obesity have a lower probability of conceiving children and are also at a higher risk for issues during pregnancy, such as gestational diabetes or hypertension than those without weight issues.
