Re: how to know if i'm infertile

The term infertile is so broad......to try and determine whether you 'might' have an issue you can do a few things on your own to start out. You can chart your Basal Body Temperature (BBT) which you can find a great deal of information online on how to do this. You can also purchase ovulation predictor kits which are similar to pregnancy tests and monitor your hormones to help you know when you will ovulate. Both of these methods are to help determine when ovulation will occur. These are not ways to tell you whether you are or are not infertile, but they are a good start in trying to understand your cycles a little better. As easy as it seems for some to become pregnant, there really is a great deal involved and you really can only conceive about two days out of every cycle. You should have at least a 28 day cycle and a minimum of a 10 day time frame from the time you ovulate until you begin your next period.

These are just some things you can look in to before you would consider taking a more invasive and expensive route and scheduling an appointment for further testing with your doctor. You can begin some basic blood work with your family doctor, but if there seems to be a real concern you would likely need to see a Reproductive Endocronologist (RE) - this is a doctor that specializes in infertility.

Good luck!
