Secondary infertility is something that most women do not expect to experience. This happens when a woman is having difficulty getting pregnant after having their first child. What makes this frustrating for couples is that most of them could not pinpoint what the issue is since they were able to get pregnant and give birth naturally the first time.
The most common cause of secondary infertility is age. Women are born with a set number of eggs to release during her entire lifetime. And a woman’s body releases the best eggs first. This is the reason why most women have an increase in ovulation and are in their peak of fertility in their twenties. This also means that by the time a woman reaches 30, her fertility begins to decline.
Another reason is lifestyle and food choices. Smoking, junk foods and drinking alcohol are all unhealthy and can be a factor to secondary infertility. If you want an addition to your family, it might be time to cut off junk foods, smoking and alcohol,2 and start doing regular exercises. It can be a exercise at outdoor waterpark with family or go for a regular morning walks.
When you and your partner are experiencing infertility, it is best to visit your doctor, especially those who have been trying for more than six months and those women who are 35 years old and above. Do not hesitate to talk to your doctor. He or she should be able to assist you and your partner on what to do.
