Recent surveys estimate that approximately one million people are suffering from secondary infertility. What is secondary infertility? If you've successfully conceived and given birth to a child and are now unable to get pregnant, you are suffering from secondary infertility. Know this: A common case of secondary infertility may go undiagnosed for years. Those suffering from secondary infertility may not even realize they have a reproductive problem – it could be male, female, or both. Do not despair any longer. Successful treatment is at hand from the secondary infertility specialists at New Hope Fertility NYC.
Primary Infertility Overview
Primary infertility is the inability to conceive a first child. For women under 35, a diagnosis of primary infertility – explained or unexplained – is made after one year of unprotected, regular sexual intercourse fails to conceive a pregnancy. Why is this important? For women over 35, this period is shortened to six months.

Causes of Secondary Infertility
The causes of secondary infertility are very close to the causes of primary infertility. The human reproductive system changes over time and medical conditions arise.
Secondary infertility can result from either male-factor infertility or female-factor infertility causes:
- Low sperm production
- Poor sperm motility – delivery
- Poor sperm quality – morphology
- Irregular or no ovulation in women
- Hormonal issues for both men and women
- Fallopian tube blockage
- Endometriosis damage
- Uterine cavity damage that may have occurred during a previous pregnancy
To begin, both partners will undergo testing to identify the root cause of secondary infertility. Then, a personalized treatment plan will be developed addressing your medical needs while incorporating your desires.
