How does a woman know if she is sterile?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.

First, the woman will need to go to a specialist to request a female fertility study.

If she is not trying to get pregnant, only a vaginal ultrasound and a pap smear are needed. These tests determine if the woman has any uterine abnormalities or any other pathology. In addition, a hormonal study is recommended to assess the woman's ovarian reserve.

If the woman has been having unprotected sexual relations regularly for a year and has not been able to get pregnant, a hysterosalpingography and a caryotype study should be carried out.
