Woo Hoo! ...... Re-opening from
Monday 26th April
Next time you see a family of three, consider the possibility that an only child may not be a choice.
According to Resolve, "Secondary infertility is defined as the inability to become pregnant, or to carry a pregnancy to term, following the birth of one or more biological children." And statistically secondary infertility is more common than primary infertility.
Women with secondary infertility have to cope with all the issues of infertility and experience the same levels of anxiety and depression as other infertile women as well as extra challenges unique to their situation:
So next time you see a family of 3 (or even 4 or 5), don't assume it's a choice - sometimes trying for that next child isn't as easy in reality as it might appear.
If you're experiencing primary or secondary infertility or know anyone who is, the FERTILITY SUPPORT GROUP Midlothian runs on the third Monday of every month.
