Secondary Infertility

September 5th, 2014

Episode 51 of 207 episodes

Secondary Infertility is a term that you will probably never know about unless it affects you personally. It's an expression mainly used by doctors to describe a couple not getting pregnant after already having been pregnant before. When I first heard the term I assumed it meant parents who had one child but wanted another but who were for whatever reason infertile. It does however refer to an inability to become pregnant after a single pregnancy, whether that followed through to term or not, so whatever the minutiae of the terminology it's one that holds a lot of heartache and sorrow if it remains unresolved.
