If you are struggling to become pregnant with your second child and are over the age of 35, you should see your doctor after six months. For those under this age, wait a year before you talk to your doctor, unless you are not ovulating.
When a woman has already had one baby, it is common to believe that she will have no trouble getting pregnant a second time. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In fact, many women struggle to become pregnant for a second time after being able to become pregnant fairly quickly the first time. This is referred to as secondary infertility.

Another issue that commonly causes women to struggle to conceive a second time is their health. When women gain weight or become less healthy than they were when they were trying to conceive the first time, this can play a huge role in their ability to conceive again. Both weight and health are items that can cause infertility in women.
Finally, it is also possible that the woman has developed a medical condition since she was pregnant the first time. If surgeries took place, scar tissue could be present that is preventing the egg from traveling as it normally would or implanting after it has been fertilized. Other medical conditions can also affect the woman’s hormones, which will make it difficult for her to ovulate regularly.
Luckily, there are several treatment options that help most women in this situation become pregnant a second time. Most of the time, you should start with your health. Make sure you are a healthy weight and are eating a healthy diet. Stay away from negative influences, like cigarettes and alcohol, that will affect your hormones and ability to conceive.
Any medical condition you have developed should also be treated properly before you try to conceive. Not only can certain medical conditions cause infertility, but they can actually make your pregnancy less healthy. In the end, not treating medical conditions properly could cause you to have issues throughout your pregnancy or even in the delivery room.
Your partner should also make sure they are protecting their sperm as much as possible. Wearing loose clothing and staying away from how area, like saunas and hot tubs, is helpful at keep sperm healthy and moving freely. He should also refrain from sitting a laptop on his lap, because this has also been shown to cause issues.
If you are struggling to become pregnant with your second child and are over the age of 35, you should see your doctor after six months. For those under this age, wait a year before you talk to your doctor, unless you are not ovulating. Most couples take at least a year to become pregnant, so this timeframe is not abnormal.
