Hello Everyone,

I went through secondary infertility myself after having my first child. We conceived him easily and he was actually a surprise baby. Before him, we got pregnant naturally 2 times before that which ended in early miscarriages. When we went to try for our second child, we assumed that this would happen easily as it had before... but it didn't. We tried for a year on our own with OPK tests, temperature charting, diet changes, the works, with no luck. We then went for fertility help and all of our testing came back normal so we were diagnosed with "unexplained infertility" (a frustrating diagnoses). It was found that one of my tubes was blocked, but likely had been since I was a teenager from when I had a ruptured cyst so they thought it unlikely that this was contributing since I had become pregnant easily on my own before with 1 working tube. We tried Clomid and IUI with no luck so then we turned to IVF. Before IVF, I had the blocked tube removed. That cycle of IVF was not successful because all of my eggs were immature (not a typical situation) and none of my eggs fertilized. It was devastating. They weren't sure if this was an egg quality issue, a problem with the stimulation protocol done with IVF, and/or a mix of a problem with my husband's sperm. The next round, they did IVF with ICSI, when they fertilize each egg by hand. With this round, about half of my eggs were mature (about 6) so we got 6 embryos. By day 3, only 2 embryos were left so both were put back. This round was successful and we had a singleton pregnancy with a healthy daughter. She is now 2. We recently found out that we are pregnant naturally by surprise! The doctors can't explain how this happened but it is a happy miracle, especially because we weren't even trying! I've been in your shoes before and I know the frustration, hopelessness, and confusion that comes along with secondary infertility. It can happen on it's own after secondary infertility and I know a number of friends, like myself who have become pregnant on their own after dealing with infertility before. Best of luck to you all!
