What is Female infertility?
Female infertility refers to a woman being unable to conceive due to problems related to egg production that make fertilization not possible. In other words, pregnancy cannot be achieved. It can appear due to a wide range of causes, each one associated to more or less noticeable symptoms. For this reason, there may appear some situations in which the woman is not aware that she is infertile until she undergoes a fertility evaluation.
There exist two main female infertility types:
Primary sterility - It appears in women who have never been pregnant before.
Secondary sterility - When a couple is unable to achieve a pregnancy even though they already have one or more children in common. In short, sterility appears after having been fertile previously.
What are the symptoms of Female infertility?
Female infertility can go unnoticed or, conversely, certain signs can make it quite obvious.
For example, in cases of female sterility due to endocrine factor, hormonal alterations usually lead to amenorrhea or menstrual irregularities, which are signs that some kind of problem exists, and are reasons why women should visit a fertility specialist.
Also, a blockage in the Fallopian tubes or the presence of myomas in the uterine cavity can cause the woman to feel pain or at least some sort of discomfort. There are, however, cases in which the patient has no noticeable symptoms, and is therefore totally unaware that there is a fertility issue that needs to be supervised by a duly qualified specialist.
Due to this wide range of signs, females in general are recommended to attend every routine gynecological consultation, and not to visit the specialist only in case of pain, nuisance, or menstrual alterations.
