More difficult to comes to terms with as compared to fertility issues when you don’t have a child, secondary infertility is very much real. It is indeed possible to develop fertility issues after your first pregnancy, so women who are trying to conceive after their first successful pregnancy but are facing some trouble, know that secondary fertility is a very real problem that can have a simple solution.
If you have had issues with infertility in the past, before your first child was born, you may remember what you did to protect yourself from surrounding yourself with pregnant women or women with small children. If you are new to the game, you may want to develop some ideas, because at preschool, at the park, and everywhere you go, you are going to see little children with their sisters or brothers and that’s going to make you feel sad. However, do know, that there is no need to give up, most infertility issues have a solution, and trusting the experts is always the best bet.
Good medical care If the world of infertility is new to you, it helps to choose only the best in the space. Trust expert fertility specialists to help you understand what issue you may have so that together, you can deal with the situation better and work towards extending your family through necessary treatment.
Avoid self-blame Stop blaming yourself to start with, and focus on the problem at hand. It’s very likely for women to blame themselves if they have waited too long in having their first child. No amount of blaming can help with the problem you have. So, be stress-free and try and understand how you can alter the situation.
Spacing matters, not How close your siblings are will not alter by the age difference between them. With secondary infertility, you may not meet that structure you wanted, and that is really ok.
Age plays a very important role in your plans for pregnancy as well. Today, more people wish to have a second child in their late 30s and early 40s, but age may play a part, but feel guilty, for the challenges their children may face. The good news is when the family grows there will be more shoulders to handle the responsibility of aging parents.
