The first sign of infertility is the inability to get pregnant after 6 to 12 month of trying to conceive. If a couple has been actively trying for over a year, it may be time to consider if there are reasons conception hasn’t occurred.

Signs of female infertility in women are most often related to changes in the menstrual cycle and ovulation. These account for 25% of female infertility situations. Other situations have to do with related disease, birth defects, age or male infertility.

Infertility signs related to the menstrual cycle and ovulation include:

  3. Absent Periods: Periods are not occurring at all
