Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive or carry a pregnancy to term after 12 months of trying to conceive. Therefore, I was diagnosed as infertile in 2007 after a full year of no prevention and no conception. I am one of the ‘lucky’ ones to experience secondary infertility as well since it was one year of no prevention and no conception since the birth of our first daughter.
We have gotten pregnant 5 times, the first 4 being through fertility treatments and the fifth is our surprise ‘free’ baby. Our first two babies were born in heaven, our third (first daughter) was born in 2000, fourth (second daughter) was in 2012, and our last baby (only son) was born in 2013.
