Scientists argue that there are early signs that can warn you of potential infertility or some risk factors that can make your intent to get a child. Many couples do not have these symptoms, but if you are among them, you must visit a doctor. Infertility is diagnosed after long unsuccessful attempts for a woman to become pregnant. If a woman is older than 35 and is trying to get pregnant between 6 months and a year, it is probably infertility. Here are some most common signs of infertility:
1. Improper menstrual cycles
Menstruation may be incorrect only at the beginning because it takes several years for the body to adjust and match the pace of maturation. But over the years the cycle should become orderly and completely correct. This can be one of the signs of infertility. After teenage years, the wrong cycle should light a red lamp as it may indicate problems with ovulation, and hence with infertility. You should talk to a doctor if your cycles are very short or very long, and if the distance between cycles is unusually long (longer than 35 days). You should also talk to a doctor and if you do not have menstruation. There are several reasons why you may have irregular menstruation, one of which is poly-cystic ovary, which today has every second woman. Other causes may be dysfunction of the thyroid, low body mass, excessive exercise, fumigated tuberculosis …
2.Too little / excessive bleeding and cramps during menstruation
Normal bleeding lasts from three to seven days, and everything that is less and more indicates a health problem. If your bleeding is intense and you suffer from severe pain, you must visit a doctor. Other symptoms that may indicate infertility include:
– significant changes in the amount of bleeding
– significant changes in the duration of bleeding
– severe menstrual cramps
– unusual time distance between two cycles.
Severe pain that complicates everyday functioning may be a sign of endometriosis or inflammatory(inflammatory) diseases of the pelvis, and both can cause infertility. Both diseases worsen over time, so it is necessary to seek medical attention.
3.Take special care if you are older than 35!
Fertility in men and women declines over the years. The risk of infertility increases in people older than 35 years and continues to grow with each subsequent year. A 30-year-old woman has 20 percent chance to conceive every month, and a 40-year-old woman has only 5 percent chance. Women older than 35 years of age have more chances of getting abortion. Although men argue the opposite, however, the years also affect their fertility, albeit not as dramatically as in women. Sperm health in men older than 35 years is endangered, and their children are more likely to develop schizophrenia or develop autism.
4. Fertility of the partner
Symptoms of infertility in men are not always so clear and recognizable, usually a reduced sperm count or reduced sperm motility. This can be determined only by a detailed medical analysis. Erectile dysfunction is an obvious cause of infertility.
5. Body mass
Even body weight plays a major role in infertility, overweight leads to major health problems and has a major impact on the system of reproductive organs. One study found that obese people have a 5% to 10% less chances of getting a child. The years in which the partners are to be added should also be added. Apart from excessive body mass over infertility, it also affects if your balance is too small, especially when it comes to men. Poor men have lower concentration and number of spermatozoa. An obese men have lower levels of testosterone and less amount of sperm.
6. Spontaneous abortion
Infertility is usually associated with inability to complicate. However, women who experience repeated spontaneous abortions also need medical attention to make it difficult. Spontaneous abortions occur in 10 to 20% of pregnancies, and recurrent abortion is not common. Only one percent of women will experience three spontaneous abortions in a row. If you have had two abortions one after another, be sure to talk to your doctor.
7. Chronic diseases
Chronic illnesses, as well as their treatments, can lead to fertility problems. For example, diabetes, untreated celiac disease, periodontal disease, and hypothyroidism may increase the risk of infertility. Sometimes treatments for chronic illnesses can have a negative effect on fertility. Insulin, antidepressants, and thyroid hormones can lead to irregular cycles. Tagatum (cimetidine), a medicine used to treat peptic ulcers and some drugs for hypertension (high blood pressure) may be the cause of male infertility. These drugs can cause problems with the production of spermatozoa or with their ability to fertilize the egg.
8. Precedent cancers
Some cancer treatments can lead to fertility problems. If you or your partner have undergone a cancer treatment period, especially radiotherapy near the reproductive organs, it is recommended that a doctor go to fertility problems.
9.History of sexually transmitted diseases
Sexually transmitted diseases can be a cause of infertility. Infection and inflammation of chlamydia or gonorrhea can cause blockage of the fallopian tubes. This can lead to infertility or to non-pregnant insemination. The same goes for men.Sexually transmitted diseases can lead to scars inside the male reproductive system, making the transmission of the seed ineffective or even impractical. Chlamydia and gonorrhea usually do not cause noticeable symptoms in women, so it is important to go to medical examinations on a regular basis. A number of sexually transmitted infections are without symptoms in women. You may feel well when the disease silently causes harm to your reproductive organs.
10.Smoking and alcohol
Bad habits, such as cigarettes and alcohol, can make it difficult for a woman to become pregnant. Smoking adversely affects the number, shape and motility of the sperm. Smoking is also closely related to erectile dysfunction.In women, smoking can accelerate the aging process of the ovaries, leading to early menopause. The good news is that if you stop smoking early enough, you can stop the damage. Alcohol causes fertility problems, both for men and women. Several studies say several drinks will not cause any damage per week. However, excessive drinking is associated with a lower number, poor mobility, and an irregular shape sperm.
11. Toxic chemicals at work
If your work involves close contacts with toxic chemicals, you may have a higher risk of infertility and reduced sperm health. Toxic chemical contacts or high heat conditions require great precautions.
12. High temperature
High temperatures are bad for sperm, among other things because doctors recommend wearing comfortable, cotton underwear, which lessens the body temperature. This applies specifically to men.
Sources of heat that can affect sperm:
-seating with cross-legs
-sitting with a laptop in lap-heating heating
The effects that heat can have on the reproductive system may be longer than you thought. A study that followed men who went to the sauna twice a week, showed a reduction in the number of movable spermatozoa. As well as more semen with damaged DNA.
