At present, there are not a few people who have difficulty getting pregnant, and more and more people go to hospitals to see infertility, but there are two kinds of patients who are more troublesome:
- One is to be nervous, comparing the search results on the Internet to give oneself [find] the disease; The other is negligence, thinking that he is still young and it is really difficult to conceive before coming to the hospital.
In fact, it is always good to see a doctor in time when problems are found. However, there are still some ways to judge whether it is [infertility].
Next, let’s look at the [six-step self-examination method] of infertility.
Step 1: Look at the time
According to the current medical definition, infertility should be:
- Husband and wife have normal sex life, do not take contraceptive measures, one year still cannot be pregnant. If husband and wife are often separated, this time can be appropriately extended to two years. If the husband and wife are over 35 years old, that has normal sex life, do not take contraceptive measures, half a year without pregnancy may be infertility.
The so-called [normal sex life] has no strict regulations and generally refers to sex life 2-3 times a week.
Regarding contraceptive measures, it refers to the correct use of condoms, or the use of contraceptives according to regulations, excluding those unreliable contraceptive methods, such as safe period contraception, coitus interruptus, etc. If you use those unreliable methods of contraception, you have never been pregnant, you should be on guard against infertility.
Step 2: Look at menstruation
Under normal circumstances, the menstrual cycle is 25-35 days and the menstrual period is 3-7 days.
Generally speaking, menstruation is normal, indicating endocrine function is normal, there will also be ovulation, which has the basic conditions for pregnancy. If menstruation has been irregular, the amount of menstruation is too much or too little, and even does not come to menstruation, it may affect ovulation and lead to infertility.
Even the healthiest women may have some changes in menstruation, especially when their emotions fluctuate greatly. Therefore, it is not necessary to be too nervous about occasional menstrual cycle changes. Excessive attention will lead to irregular menstruation.
In addition, attention should be paid to the presence or absence of dysmenorrhea, which is normal under normal circumstances, but sometimes dysmenorrhea may be caused by diseases such as endometriosis, which is related to infertility.
Step 3: History of Medical Treatment
To judge infertility, it is very important to know that you have suffered from what before.
Pelvic and abdominal infection and surgical experience are very easy to cause infertility, such as pelvic abscess, appendicitis, abdominal tuberculosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, intestinal obstruction, ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis, ovarian cyst, cesarean section, induced abortion, etc., which can affect the normal function of fallopian tubes and lead to infertility.
In addition, endocrine diseases and autoimmune diseases may be related to infertility, such as thyroid diseases, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, etc.
Step 4: Look at the weight
Weight is an important indicator to measure a person’s health. Overweight and underweight are not conducive to health.
To judge whether the body weight is healthy, [body mass index] is used, and the normal body mass index is between 18 and 25.
People who are too fat or too thin for a long time often have some abnormalities in endocrine function, thus affecting ovarian ovulation and leading to infertility.
Step 5: Look at the age
To a certain extent, infertility is an age-determined disease, because with age, women’s fertility will decrease significantly, and the incidence of infertility will certainly increase.
In the treatment of infertility, young people may still be able to [willfully], while older women will [stupid birds fly first].
- If a 25-year-old infertile patient hesitates about treatment, the doctor may give her several years to think. However, if it is a 35-year-old patient, the doctor will not be so tolerant and may require her to be treated immediately, because once she is over 40 years old, even if she is a IVF, the success rate will be greatly reduced.
Step 6: See a doctor
In fact, doctors’ greatest expectation is not to [cure diseases], but to help everyone [prevent diseases] through popular medical science and health consultation.
For the five steps mentioned above, if you find any problems after comparison, no matter whether there is infertility or not, you should deal with them in advance.
If you already have difficulties in pregnancy, don’t be shy about medical treatment, let alone [self-conditioning]. Take the sixth step bravely and go to the reproductive center of a regular hospital to see a doctor.
