What is meant by women of childbearing age is a state of female reproductive organs functioning properly between the ages of 20-45 years. In women of childbearing age took place more rapidly than in men. Peak is in the age range 20-29 years. At this age a woman has a 95% chance of getting pregnant. At the age of 30 percentage decreased to 90%. While entering the age of 40, pregnant chance reduced to 40%. After age 40 women only have a maximum 10% chance of getting pregnant. Reproductive fertility problems is very important to know. Where in the fertile women should maintain personal hygiene and care for the maintenance of state genitals diligently to clean it. 

Therefore advisable to take care of themselves.

To know the signs of infertile women, among others:

1. Menstrual Cycle

Women who have regular menstrual cycles every month is usually fertile. One menstrual cycle starting from the first day out period until the day before your period comes back, which usually lasts for 28 to 30 days. Therefore, the menstrual cycle can be the first indication to mark a woman's fertile or not. The menstrual cycle is influenced by female sex hormones are estrogen and progesterone. These hormones cause physiological changes in female body that can be viewed through several clinical indicators such as, changes in basal body temperature, changes in cervical mucus secretions (cervical), changes in the cervix, the length of the menstrual cycle (calendar method) and minor indicators of fertility such as pain stomach and breast changes.

2. The ticker fertility

Technological advances such as ovulation thermometer can also be used as a tool to detect a woman's fertility. This thermometer will record changes in body temperature when she issued a seed or egg cell. If the seed out, usually thermometer will record the temperature rise of as much as 0.2 degrees celsius for 10 days. But if the woman does not experience changes in body temperature of the fertile period, means the woman is not fertile.

3. Blood Test

Women with irregular menstrual cycles, like the coming period of three months or six months are usually infertile. If under these conditions, several blood tests need to be done to find out the cause of the menstrual cycle is not smooth. Blood tests performed to determine the content of hormones that act on a woman's fertility.

4. Physical examination

To know a woman is fertile also can be known from the organs of the body of a woman. Some organs, such as breast, thyroid gland in the neck, and reproductive organs. The thyroid gland that secretes hormones thyroxine excess will interfere with the process of releasing eggs. While breast examination is intended to find out where the content of the hormone prolactin high prolactin hormone would interfere the process of spending the egg. In addition, examination of the reproductive system also needs to be done to determine the reproductive system is normal or not.

5. Track record

Women who have experienced miscarriage, whether intentional or not, the chances of contracting the bacteria in the reproductive tract will be high. These bugs will cause damage and blockage of the reproductive tract.


There are several methods used to calculate a woman's fertile period. The most effective method is to use a different approach is usually an indicator of temperature changes combined with changes in cervical mucus. These indicators have been scientifically proven to reflect changes in hormonal and fertility status accurately.

Calculation of fertile period using the calendar system is a way of natural or nature that is used only when a woman has regular menstrual cycles. The calculation is based during the fertile time ovulation occurs on day 14 of the menstrual period to come and minus 2 days because sperm can live for 48 hours after ejaculation and added two days for the egg can live 24 hours after ovulation.

By knowing the fertile period, it will be useful for couples who have trouble getting offspring, namely by:

Assess the incidence and time of ovulation.
Predicts the days of maximum fertility.
Optimizing the time to have sex to get pregnant.
Help identify some of the problems of infertility.
Lack of knowledge about reproductive fertility, especially in women, often associated with various diseases, whereas the level of fertility every person is different - different depending on physical condition and mental. 

Infertility reproduction tools often also associated with various illnesses suffered by one of the couples who have it, of which 40% are caused by a female infertility factor while the other 40% because of man, and the remaining 20% ​​for both.

But basically the reproduction infertility in women caused by:

Hormonal dysfunction
Blockage of the Fallopian tubes
Ovary cyst
Poor sperm motility.

Therefore, women of childbearing age must conduct a medical examination (examination of the genitalia), although it has a menstrual cycle / menstrual regularly. It is not a sign that she was fertile. This means that WUS must be healthy free from venereal disease. Before marriage WUS should conduct a medical examination to determine the condition of their reproductive organs are functioning properly. By conducting a medical examination will prevent genital disease. Female genitalia are very in touch with the outside world through the hole intercourse, cervical channel, cavity / space of the uterus. Oviduct (fallopian tubes) which empties into the abdominal space. Because of this direct relationship female genital infection caused by an unhealthy sexual relationship, so that infection can be sustained exterior walking up to the abdomen in the form of infection of the lining of the abdominal wall or also called peritonitis.

Defense system of the female genitals are pretty good that the acid system, usually the other defense systems by way of the mucus that is always flowing outward causing bacteria are discarded in the form of menstruation, the defense system is very weak, so the infection is often dammed and surely spread in all directions that lead to sudden and chronic infections.


What is the age for a man considered too old to have children? Do men also have restrictions as well as women in terms of fertility?
In contrast to women, men do not have a "deadline" to have children. Although the quality, quantity, and movement of sperm dropped dramatically at the age of 50 years. Male fertility will be reduced every decade, especially after he was aged over 35 years. The number of sperm aged 50-80 years compared to only 75 percent of men aged 20-50 years.

Swimming ability of sperm was also reduced with age. Sperm mobility is best at age 25 years and lowest in the age of 55 years. From the age of 35-55 years, sperm mobility is reduced to 54 percent, no matter how much he had sex.

However, that should be of concern is the quality of sperm when a man turns the age of 50 years. In case of egg fertilization in this age, it is likely that children born will have birth defects or health problems.
So far scientific research shows, the older the age of the father as a child, the greater the risk of having a child with Down syndrome, schizophrenia, autism, and other genetic diseases. The risk of the mother to have a miscarriage is also higher.

In other words, although male fertility is not affected as women age, there are factors that decrease the quality of health of babies will be born.
