Life After Fertility Treatment: Baby Fever
You did it. You fought through infertility. You and your partner are finding your groove as new parents. Maybe it’s the lack of sleep or erupting hormones talking, but you find yourself dreaming of another baby.
You’re not alone! According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average family has 2-3 children. For those who sought fertility treatment to conceive their first child, the idea of seeking treatment again can be physically, emotionally and financially daunting. The looming question remains: If you had trouble getting pregnant the first time around, does it mean you’ll need treatment to get pregnant again? Each case and individual is unique, but it’s likely.
If you’re considering adding another baby to your family, it’s important to stay healthy, think positive, and once you’ve decided to have another child, start trying. You should make an appointment to see a specialist right away. Depending on the issues and treatment you experienced in your first pregnancy, Dr. Robins and the team at Center for Reproductive Health can recommend a plan for conception and discuss every option with you.
Some symptoms or conditions you experienced may no longer be a problem for you, but issues such as growths in your uterine lining, have a likelihood of coming back and affecting your fertility. Age is also a contributing factor in fertility health and the same treatment that helped you get pregnant the first time, may not be as effective the second time around.
Dr. Robins at Center for Reproductive Health has helped thousands of Pacific Northwest families get pregnant – many of them more than once. Once you’re ready to continue growing your family, make the call and the top specialists will work with you to create a plan that is best for your health, your family and your goals to have a healthy pregnancy and baby.
