Why would it take so long to conceive the second child, when we had no problem conceiving the first?
Secondary infertility, just as painful and frustrating as primary infertility and even harder to be understood and find support in your pain.
There are many causes that your doctor would have already discussed with you such as the development of endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, adhesions, low sperm count, but I want to explain a few other potential causes that your doctor that you may not have been considered before...
1. Traumatic Birth
If you experienced an extremely traumatic birth, where there was a fear of dying for you or your baby, this could be why you are not falling pregnant again. The trauma leaves an imprint on your emotional body and even though you desperately want a second child, there will be an underlying fear that it could happen again. A homeopathic remedy matched to how you felt at the time will heal the trauma so you can conceive again.
2. Use of hormonal contraception after your last pregnancy
You may have used hormonal contraception for many years before you fell pregnant the first time and had no problem conceiving your first child. But as women experience primary infertility from hormonal contraception, for you this could have been just too much for your delicate hormonal balance and the cause of secondary infertility. In my clinic, I detox hormonal contraception in all my female patients over two months.
3. Birth drugs used during labor
Many hormonal drugs are used during labor, and in the same way as hormonal contraceptives, this may have tipped your hormones out of balance. These drugs can also be detoxed homeopathically over two months.
I have seen time and time again, how grief affects fertility. If you have lost someone close to you since your last pregnancy, please do not underestimate how much this could be the cause of your secondary infertility. Grief produces cortisol and adrenaline, which uses up the resources needed for fertility hormones. Healing grief, is very quick and easy with Homeopathy, of course, you will still feel sad about what has happened, but from a better place, where it is not affecting your health.
I know you would have heard time and time again, you need to lower stress to conceive, not very easy when you are running a home, potentially working with a young child. With homeopathy, I am able to rebalance your adrenaline and cortisol and support your adrenal glands, so that the effects of stress are not so harmful to the body. So many times I have seen my clients make better choices, more able to make changes in their lives, and set boundaries, to help cut down stress levels.
Other Medications? Any medication that you have taken can be detoxed quickly and easily with Homeopathy. If you are worried that an antidepressant, antihistamine, pain killer, etc, has affected your cycle, then please get in touch to find out more.
