Hi, I'm casting my net a lot wider than just physical reasons for my body not getting pg and wondering whether those of you with secondary infertility have had some trauma with your first pgs, births or babies?
I remember some research about secondary IF in women who had given up their babies for adoption. It ran at FORTY PER CENT unexplained IF!!!!!!!!!! so there's definitely something in there about fear preventing conception....
my story; I got pg to the wrong man at the wrong time. After for trying for 7 years with the man I thought was the right one but BROKE MY HEART BAD........ I was very sick and underweight and studying and working; had no support (he didn't live in the same town even).
I had m/s all the way through, prem labour 3 times, and emergency c/s after not getting past 2cm after 40 hours at 37wks....
then a month later my DD almost died of an undiagnosed major heart defect; rushed off to the other end of the country in the air ambulance for emergency surgery; only just made it.
I know it is the most traumatic thing that has ever happened to me, and am working through ALL the issues in this complex one, but am just at the curious stage about whether anyone else thinks extreme trauma has affected their fertility?
