Secondary Infertility

Secondary infertility is when a woman — a mom — is unable to conceive or to carry a pregnancy to term after having successfully delivered a biological child who was conceived with no reproductive support therapies.

As is the case with first-time infertility, specialists advise couples to actively try to conceive for 1 year on their own if the woman is under age 35, or for 6 months if she is 35 or older. If there are known health concerns, however, such as irregular menstrual cycles, previous miscarriages, or if the male partner has a low sperm count, couples are encouraged to make an appointment with a specialist for a complete evaluation.
