June is U.S. World Infertility Awareness Month

Infertility is perhaps more common than many people think: according to the CDC, about 1 in 5 women are unable to get pregnant after one year of trying. Women may also have difficulty staying pregnant if they do finally conceive, and may miscarry. About 10 to 15 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage, according to the March of Dimes.

Some women experience infertility after a traumatic birth experience, which is known as secondary infertility. One such case involved a Florida mother who had a harrowing delivery following the C-section birth of her first child. After her delivery, the baby boy was found to be limp and blue in color. Soon after, the baby suffered a stroke and a seizure while in the NICU—an unfortunate but common event for children suffering from birth trauma. Days later, the mother, who is a pediatrician, noticed her heart was racing and her stomach was bloated and tight. The postpartum staff dismissed her concerns and the mother developed fluid abscesses in her abdomen, necessitating another surgery. These consecutive surgeries caused scar tissue to develop and resulted in the removal of one of her fallopian tubes. Following these troubles, the mother has begun the IVF process to try for a second child.
