Being diagnosed with secondary infertility can be pretty devastating. I know because of my own experience with it. There are so many factors to deal with when you are going through it. It is not only your health you have to deal with, but everything else that comes with it. Here are some tips on dealing with secondary infertility:
The first thing you should do is discuss with your doctor why you might have secondary infertility. My situation was unique, because I had placental abruption with my child which caused us both to almost die. I lost more than 50% of the blood in my body. When I had trouble having another child the doctors told I had too much damage done to my body to probably be able to carry another child. Ask for answers if you do not understand why you cannot have another child after having your first one. It helps to understand the cause.
It is normal to have many emotions when you are having trouble having another child. You might have questions about why you could have one child but not another child. It may make you angry, and you may become depressed. I know every time I passed the all-girl pink toy aisle in the toy stores that I would just cry my heart out because I really wanted a baby girl to love as well as my first child. Whatever emotions you are feeling are okay because emotions are not good or bad. They just are. If you feel like your emotions are leading you down a dark path, please discuss them with your doctor so they can help you.
Sometimes there are treatment options that help people to have another child successfully. New technology comes out all the time. So, try not to give up hope on having another child unless your doctor says there is absolutely no help. Ask your doctor for the treatment options that are best for what situation you are going through. I am blessed to say that after much heartbreak through the years that I eventually did have my baby daughter. The entire struggle was worth it. I was one of the lucky ones, and I hope that if you have secondary infertility that you will be too.
