Infertility can be an uncomfortable and difficult topic to discuss, but infertility affects more people than you might think. According to the Mayo Clinic, “An estimated 10 to 18 percent of couples have trouble getting pregnant or having a successful delivery.” Below are some common signs of infertility according to our research.

For Women:

  • A menstrual cycle that’s too long 35 days or longer, too short less than 21 days, irregular or absent
  • Pain during sex
  • Dark or pale menstrual blood
  • Hormone changes
  • Underlying medical conditions – damage of fallopian tubes or ovaries, premature menopause, endometriosis, cancer
  • Not getting pregnant for 12 months
    • This is only a concern if the sperm source is known to be in good health; recommend that male partners have a semen evaluation

For Men:

  • Problem with sexual functions – difficulty with ejaculation or small volumes of fluid ejaculation, reduced sexual desire, erectile dysfunction
  • Breast growth
  • Irregular facial or body hair growth
  • Low sperm count
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Changes in testicles
