Secondary Infertility Hurts TooI frequently hear from women who had a child or children when they were younger and want to have another when they're older. When I ran an infertility support group, there were a few women who had secondary infertility. They had an older child or they perhaps had fertility treatments for their first child. They wanted a second child, but could not get pregnant again.
Sometimes they remarry or sometimes they just decide it's time to add to their family. Since they already have a child, they are very surprised and frustrated to find they can't seem to get pregnant again.
from the article:
And I got to experience this not just once but twice. Now I have two beautiful, dazzling little girls. And I feel lucky. And sort of greedy. Because I desperately want a third. And a part of me feels like I should be satisfied with my two healthy children. But my family just feels incomplete.
