What is important to understand is infertility can be treated.
The key to treatment is knowing the signs of infertility and taking action to treat the symptoms as early as possible.
And, infertility is not limited to just females as many people think.
Men can experience infertility just as much as women.
In fact, on average, men and women nearly bear equal responsibility relative to infertility, with men being the problem in 30%-40% of the cases and women with the same average.
The remaining problems are either a combination of both, or unexplained infertility.
For women, one easily identifiable symptom of infertility is an irregular pattern in menstrual cycles.
This is not just a sign of infertility but could also be a indication of other health-related issues.
In either case, medical attention should be promptly sought.
Other issues that should be given immediate medical attention are painful menstrual periods or pelvic infection.
Another sign of infertility is body weight, both in overweight and grossly underweight women.
A nutritional diet is important in order to keep the hormone balance intact and provide the necessary means for getting pregnant.
Also, body structure is important to properly nurse the fetus as a woman with the hip region being too narrow makes the task of conceiving a baby more difficult.
Excessive drinking can also be a factor in infertility, especially over long periods of time.
There are also signs not identifiable without the help of medical testing.
For instance, if the ovary in a woman is twisted, this can prevent the sperm from entering into the ovary to join with the egg.
Also, cysts present in the ovary can prevent pregnancy.
These, along with other common symptoms, are easily diagnosed by a medical professional through various tests.
For a man, the signs are not as easily recognizable, however, in general, fertility levels tend to go down as a man becomes more and more obese.
Like women, men have hormonal cycles as well, but unlike women, these cycles are not consistent, but do contribute to the quality of the sperm.
The lower the quality, the less ability to impregnate.
The menopause version for males, called Andropause, provide for easier detection of the signs of infertility.
Signs include regular hair loss, gaining fat in the abdominal area, dryness of the skin, erectile dysfunction, low libido levels, stress and depression.
For both men and women, advancing in age will have an impact on fertility as well.
In general, good health, healthy eating habits and a healthy state of mind can only help keep infertility at bay.
