Many women who have been able to successfully conceive and give birth in the past, don’t have as much luck the next time around. This is actually known as secondary infertility. If you are struggling with secondary infertility, just know that you are not alone. About 3 million women in the United States are unable to get pregnant or carry a full pregnancy after previously delivering a successful pregnancy.
The causes of secondary infertility are very similar to those of primary infertility. Secondary infertility could be either male-factor infertility or female factor infertility and rare cases both. Some causes of secondary infertility are:
- Sperm quality, mobility, or quantity
- Irregular or no ovulation
- Endometriosis damage
- Fallopian Tube blockage
- Uterine cavity damage (a result from the previous pregnancy)
Coping with secondary infertility can be difficult. You may begin to experience an array of emotions like guilt, frustration, sadness, confusion, and loneliness.
