My husband and I had no problem getting pregnant with our daughter, who is now 4 years old. We've been trying for another baby for the past 10 months, with no luck. I'm surprised, given the easy time we had before. I am 37 years old now. Could my age be the problem? Do you recommend that we seek help, or just keep trying?
Secondary infertility, the inability to conceive after being pregnant previously, is more common than primary infertility. About 60 percent of new infertility patients I see have been pregnant previously.
Infertility does increase with age so that certainly could be a contributing factor at age 37. If you have been trying for more than a year, I would recommend seeing a fertility specialist.
