There might be no additional signs or symptoms.

Infertility occurs when a couple is unable to conceive after a year of regular, unprotected sex. Both men and women can be affected by infertility. If a woman who is not on birth control and unable to become pregnant for a year, she is classified as infertile. If a male has too few sperm or if his sperm are too unhealthy to join with a woman’s egg, he is classified as infertile.

The inability to conceive is the most common sign of infertility but there might be additional signs or symptoms. Women may experience difficulties with their menstruation, such as discomfort or unusual bleeding. Erectile dysfunction can be an issue for some men.

Conceiving (becoming pregnant) is a difficult process. Both the man and the woman must have several things go their way. As a result, there are various factors that may contribute to infertility and make it harder for some couples to become pregnant.

  • Ovulation Issues: Ovulation is when the egg leaves the ovary and travels to meet the sperm. Some women do not ovulate on a monthly basis. 
  • Problems with Reproductive Organs: These include the fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus, or ovaries. This may be due to a blockage, growths, scarring, larger ovaries, or an irregular opening of the cervix.
  • Early-Onset Menopause: This generally occurs before the age of 40. It might be caused by an autoimmune disorder, chemotherapy, or a hereditary abnormality.
  • Health Conditions: These may include endometriosis, PCOS, pelvic inflammatory disease, cancer, diabetes, autoimmunity, and celiac disease.
  • Weight Management: Too high or too low BMI, and too much or too little exercise might have an impact on a woman’s ability to conceive. 
  • Age: It becomes more difficult for a woman to conceive after the age of 35.
  • Unhealthy Sperm: This may involve both the quality and speed with which a man’s sperm travels.
  • Bacterial Infection: This could be an infection within the man’s testicles or a sexually transmitted infection.
  • A Varicocele: This is a condition when the veins inside the loose skin that covers a man’s testicles swell. It may result is a low sperm count.
  • Undescended Testicles: This is where one of both testicles remain in his abdomen. The testicles are intended to fall from the abdomen into the scrotal sac at birth.
  • Sexual Dysfunction: This may include erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, or not ejaculating at all.
