Secondary Infertility

Secondary infertility is typically defined as the inability to become pregnant, or to carry a pregnancy to term, following the birth of one or more biological children where the birth of the first child does not involve any assisted reproductive technologies or fertility medications.

Causes of Secondary Infertility
There are many factors that can contribute to secondary infertility. One of the most frequent causes of secondary infertility in women is due to the development of endometriosis. Other causes include irregular ovulation, fallopian tube disease or the decline in the concentration or motility of the male’s sperm. Other factors can involve age, scarring after childbirth or stress, which can affect ovulation and sperm production.
