Can an infertile woman have periods?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 05/30/2017

Yes, it really depends on the cause of infertility. For example, in cases of tubal factor infertility, the tubes might be blocked or absent, but the woman still ovulates, and that is why techniques such as IVF are feasible. On the other hand, there is also the opposite case, that is, the woman has regular menstrual periods, but is unable to get pregnant.
