The team at Fertility Institute of Texas understands that secondary infertility brings significant emotional concerns. Well-meaning family and friends can put pressure on the infertile parents by asking questions such as: “Don’t you want to give your child a little sister?” or “You don’t want your daughter to be an only child do you?”
Parents worry about how their own difficult emotions about secondary infertility will affect their existing children.
Friends or family may mistakenly assume you are not ‘trying’ to conceive and make comments that are inadvertently hurtful: “People are having too many children these days – you are smart to just have one.” These kinds of comments can be very painful to hear.
Education is one of the keys to surviving secondary infertility.
Dr Hudson believes in responsible information on the internet and has put together a list of resources for couples dealing with Secondary Infertility.
