Secondary infertility is something I never knew anything about until it happened to me. It is more common than I realised too. With it comes many emotions. One such emotion which really overwhelmed me was guilt. Guilt that I wanted another child when I had one already. Guilt that some people aren’t ever fortunate enough to have one child, yet here I was, with my beautiful daughter, feeling incomplete.

Infertility can be caused by one or more factors for both men and women. It is important to recognize the signs of when a couple should take the first steps to see a doctor to learn about their options. Most experts suggest at least one year of trying for men and women younger than age 35. However, women aged 35 years or older should see a health care provider after six months of trying unsuccessfully. A woman's chances of having a baby generally decrease rapidly every other year or so after the age of 30.

Measuring the quantity and quality of eggs is one of the most challenging aspects of fertility care. While many patients and couples are often given the diagnosis of “egg factor” or “advanced age” or “decreased ovarian reserve”, the actual diagnosis can be hard to make and even harder to understand.

The world of fertility treatments is expanding each day with fertility preservation procedures becoming more and more popular. This allows women to have biological children in the future, even if they are not at their most fertile age. Fertility Preservation is a way for men and women to freeze their sperm, eggs or embryos for future use. Patients facing chemotherapy and radiation for cancer or those with ovarian cysts, lupus or a family history of early menopause may also benefit from fertility preservation. Eggs, sperm, and resulting embryos may all be frozen and stored for prolonged periods until future use in IVF cycles. They are frozen using liquid nitrogen and stored in special facilities. Once the patient is ready to start a family of their own, the preserved samples are thawed and prepared for use in IVF cycles.

I have proof that good can come out of bad. Why? How? Let me tell you.

A few weeks ago I decided to start blogging. I decided to share my story. I don’t want to ruin it for you, but I want you to know it has a happy ending. Why am I telling you this? To explain why I wrote it in the first place. I’m going to be telling you the journey I went on to complete my family. My end result is a six-year-old girl and twins, a girl and boy, who are almost ten-months-old.

I married later in life, became pregnant in my late 30’s and learned when I was 37 that I would not be able to have my own biological children due to my poor egg quality. Ultimately, my husband and I had three boys in one year thanks to an anonymous egg donor cycle and private domestic adoption.

The obvious question is, “Do I wish I would have frozen my eggs when I was younger so that I my children could all share my DNA? The short answer is, “No and Yes.” The yeses may surprise you.
