Symptoms and diagnosis of Infertility

Symptoms and diagnosis of Infertility

The symptoms and signs of primary infertility and secondary infertility are either the failure to conceive or, while not being defined as infertility, the failure to carry a pregnancy through. In dealing with female infertility it is vital to have a very clear history, particularly a history relating to the menstrual cycle, previous pregnancies, terminations of pregnancy and any history of pelvic infection or pelvic pain.

Eating disorders, such as anorexia and bulimia, may create hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiencies, which may also be associated with subsequent infertility. An important aspect of conventional diagnosis is an evaluation of the male sperm.
