Psychological struggles in secondary infertility
Dr. Rimmy Singla, an OB-GYN and IVF Specialist and director of Singla Mediclinic at Mohali, says several conditions can cause secondary infertility like obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the use of some medications, prior surgery, endometriosis, issues with cervical mucus and the age of both partners.
“Many health conditions can be present without symptoms, until such a time as the couple wishes to become pregnant. If there is an issue within a year of trying in couples less than 35 years of age or after six months in couples older than 35, it’s time to see your Doctor.”
