Signs of infertility in women:

Irregular periods

This is one of the most common signs of infertility that is associated with PCOS. Generally, the menstrual cycle is 28 days long. But if a woman is having 33-day cycle in one month, then 31-day cycle in the next month and 35 days cycle after that, then she is having a normal period. But if she cannot keep a track of her menstrual cycles, then there is a problem.

Painful periods

Having cramps is very normal in menstruation. But if your period is disturbing your daily life, then you need to consult your doctor.

No periods at all

Sometimes women miss their periods for a month or several months due to various factors like hormonal changes, stress, tension, etc. In such cases, you will need the gynaecologist's guidance.

Skin problems like acne.

Reduced intercourse drive.

Facial hair growth.
