Signs That You Could Be Extremely Fertile

Depending on your age, the word "fertile" either sends chills of fear down your spine or could be the answer to your endless prayers. No matter what stage of life you find yourself in, paying attention to these 6 signals your body is sending you could be vital in understanding your own fertility.

1. You're between the ages of 20 and 24

Dr. Aaron Styer, a renowned reproductive endocrinologist and co-medical director at CCRM Boston says that a woman's peak fertility occurs in her early twenties. Although women are typically in their top physical and reproductive health between the ages of 20 and 24, women can achieve healthy pregnancies at a variety of ages thanks to medical advancements in reproductive technology.

2. You impact your friends' cycles

Women know that when they spend a lot of time with their girlfriends, their cycles sometimes begin to "sync-up." This happens due to a woman's pheromones. If you find that your friends sync-up with you more often than your own cycle becomes disrupted, you are likely extremely fertile.

3. Your periods are regular

Regular cycles are a sign of a healthy reproductive system, and irregularity can often be a sign that something is wrong. A great sign of fertility is extremely regular periods. If you can nearly plot down the minute you are expecting your period, you are likely very fertile.

4. You experience symptoms of PMS

PMS, or pre-menstrual syndrome, although seemingly problematic for some women, is a sign that your body is working exactly as it should be. A study in Evolution and Human Behavior found that women can get a little rambunctious as a result of their PMS--sometimes by sleeping around a little bit--on their most fertile days. We can blame evolution for that.

5. You do not experience hot flashes

Women who experience frequent (more often than once every twenty-four days) hot flashes often experience issues with fertility, like having a decreased number of and quality of eggs. For women experiencing this, known as subfertility, contact your OBGYN to discuss your concerns. For those of you staying cool, your fertility is likely right on track.

6. You're wearing the right "genes"

Many women make assumptions about their own fertility based off of the ease or difficulty their mothers, sisters, and other relatives experienced when trying to conceive. Doctors say that the fertility or subfertility of relatives is difficult to connect to a woman's own fertility. So if you're having concerns about your fertility because of a relative's fertility, try not to worry about it. Have you figured out whether you're fertile yet? Although these signs can help you determine your own fertility, the best way to understand your own fertility is to contact a doctor, who can then lead you to the family planning techniques specific to you.
