6 Signs of Infertility to Look Out For

Signs of Infertility

  • You are experiencing either very short or extraordinarily long menstrual cycles – or, your cycle is unpredictable
  • Your blood flow is either very light or it is too heavy and intense during your menstrual cycle
  • Your menstrual cramps are severe
  • You have experienced one or more miscarriage
  • You are extremely underweight or overweight
  • You have a history of exposure to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

Signs of Infertility


If you are 35 or younger and fall within one or more of these categories – and you have not been able to become pregnant after having regular, unprotected sex for one year – you are probably experiencing a hidden medical condition that is preventing you from conceiving naturally. If you are over 35 and have been trying to get pregnant after six months of unprotected, regular sexual intercourse, you must seek medical attention immediately to ensure that you do not waste precious time past your prime reproductive years.

Dr. Hugh D. Melnick cautions women who have not been able to get pregnant:

Don’t wait another six months before seeking medical attention. Even if you are generally healthy and do not have any of these obvious signs of infertility – Diagnostic Testing and treatment procedures at Advanced Fertility Services can increase your chances of conception.
