Generally, newly married couples worry about fertility problems after more than a year of marriage and never get a baby. In fact, signs of fertility problems can actually be identified since before marriage. And the earlier this fertility disorder is identified, the sooner this problem can be dealt with.
For women, here are some signs of fertility problems. Come on, look carefully!
1. Menstrual periods are long and painful
Some women experience smooth menstruation without significant pain, while others experience heavy menstruation with painful cramps.
By page Medical News Today, women who experience painful menstruation and a long period of time may show signs of endometriosis, a condition in which tissue normally found in the uterus grows elsewhere in the body.
Endometriosis is a risk factor for infertility that has symptoms of chronic pelvic pain, pain during sex, back pain, fatigue, nausea, and irregular periods.
2. Menstrual blood that is very dark or pale
Reporting from the page Medical News TodayMenstrual blood is usually bright red at the start of menstruation and may become darker in the following days.
Conversely, blood that is very dark and old in the early periods can be a sign of endometriosis. Similarly, menstrual blood that is paler than usual can also be a sign of reproductive problems that cannot be ignored.

3. Do not experience menstruation
Another main indicator of infertility is amenorrhea, which is not experiencing menstruation at all. Reporting from the page Glamor, Amenorrhea is diagnosed when a woman does not menstruate for three months or more.
This can be caused by a number of factors, such as stress, low body weight, excessive exercise, taking certain drugs, uterine scarring, and lack of certain reproductive organs.
4. Experiencing hormone fluctuations
By page Healthline, Hormonal fluctuations in women can indicate potential fertility problems. Some of the symptoms that can be caused by hormonal changes are skin problems, decreased sex drive, facial hair growth, thinning hair, weight gain, and cold hands and feet.
A study published in a journal Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology found that obesity can have a negative impact on reproductive health. Where women with obesity have a lower chance of getting pregnant and have a higher risk of having problems during pregnancy compared to those who do not have weight problems.
Those are some signs of fertility disorders in women. The symptoms above can not be used as the only guideline, it’s just that there is nothing wrong if you check yourself if you experience the symptoms above?
