Also, other things that can increase the risk of female infertility are: sexually transmitted infections (STIs), health problems that cause hormonal changes, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome and primary ovarian insufficiency. :roll: :roll:

Many women are waiting until their 30s and 40s to have children. In fact, about 20 percent of women in the some States now have their first child after age 35. So age is a growing cause of fertility problems. About one-third of couples in which the woman is over 35 have fertility problems. :roll: :geek: :geek:

Aging decreases a woman's chances of having a baby in the following ways:
Her ovaries become less able to release eggs.
She has a smaller number of eggs left.
Her eggs are not as healthy.
She is more likely to have health conditions that can cause fertility problems.
She is more likely to have a miscarriage... :o ;) 8-)

Some health problems also increase the risk of infertility. So, women should talk to their doctors if they have:
Irregular periods or no menstrual periods
Very painful periods
Endometriosis
Pelvic inflammatory disease
More than one miscarriage. :? :idea: :idea:

It is a good idea for any woman to talk to a doctor before trying to get pregnant. Doctors can help you get your body ready for a healthy baby. They can also answer questions on fertility and give tips on conceiving. :D :D :D

In women, the first step is to find out if she is ovulating each month. There are a few ways to do this. A woman can track her ovulation at home by:
-Writing down changes in her morning body temperature for several months
-Writing down how her cervical mucus looks for several months
-Using a home ovulation test kit (available at drug or grocery stores). :shock: :shock: ;)

Doctors can also check ovulation with blood tests. Or they can do an ultrasound of the ovaries. If ovulation is normal, there are other fertility tests available. :P :P :P
