Secondary Infertility

Secondary Infertility

So, you’ve had a healthy pregnancy, maybe even two. Obviously, there are no problems with your fertility, right? Getting pregnant with your next child will be a piece of cake! Well, not so fast… Even though most people think that after one healthy pregnancy, you are obviously fertile, that is not always the case. Secondary Infertility is the inability to conceive or carry a pregnancy to term after naturally and successfully giving birth to one or more children. Secondary Infertility is actually quite common, affecting over three million women in the United States alone. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Understanding secondary infertility

Secondary Infertility can be heartbreaking for couples who desperately want to add to their family. Unlike primary infertility, secondary infertility often goes untreated. This is because many couples don’t know about secondary infertility, and they simply think if they keep trying they will eventually get pregnant. Secondary Infertility can also be very hard to understand, since you might have had no trouble conceiving before. Secondary Infertility also doesn’t usually come along with the social support that primary infertility does, since most people don’t understand it, and it can often be overlooked.

Why does secondary infertility occur?

There are quite a few reasons, but most of the reasons for secondary infertility mirror the same reasons for primary infertility. Sometimes, since your previous pregnancy, you might have gained weight, making it harder to get pregnant. Your health may have decreased since your last pregnancy, and if it has been a while, your egg quality and quantity might have begun to decrease, making it harder to conceive. You might have also developed uterine fibroids, endometriosis, or other ovulation problems since your previous pregnancies.

Treatments for secondary infertility

The treatments for secondary are the same as the treatments for primary infertility, with no major differences. However, the way that couples deal with secondary infertility is often quite different from the way couples deal with primary infertility. This is because couples facing secondary infertility are already parents, and their needs can be different than couples without children. Finances are also often very different once you become parents, and couples will have to carefully weigh their options to decide just how far they are willing to go to add to their family. Couples have to make sure that their desire to add to their family doesn’t come at a detriment to the family that they already have.
