Missed periods: Speaking literally, there are no symptoms specific to female infertility. Missed, absent, or irregular periods come from irregular or abnormal ovulations, which is the most common cause of female infertility. Pelvic pain, particularly painful intercourse, is often (but not always) suggestive of endometriosis, which caa also be a fertility factor in women.
