I already have a son with a previous partner and now i cannot get pregnant again with my new partner. We have now been trying for 4 years and nothing has happened.
I had two miscarriages before having my son previously. And it took in total two years to concieve him. I had a tough labour consisting of 72 hours labour, vontouse and an opesiotamy later but it was so worth it. However i got an infection in my womb after having my son as i had many stitches from being cut and so on.
I am worried that this infection has maybe caused something to happen to me that is stopping me to concieve. Also My new partner has not got any biological children and he is 31 (although he has never tried for a baby untill now) and he really wants to be a biological farther Smile
do we get ourselves chec ked out by the doctors and get tests done but i am worried that this is going to lead to invasive treatments and that my sex life becomes a necesity, not the loving fun that a sex life should be.
I am trying not to let it bother me too much but as time goes on i get more and more concerned about this. can anyone help me. Has anyone gone through anything similar and what tests did you have if you had any?
will look forward to your advice and comments Smile xxsammyxx

I am having the same type of problem, however we have not been trying that long. i am 26 and have a 4 year old but after having a c-section with her, it got infected and they had to open me up and let it heal from the inside out. so now i wonder if maybe that is the reason i cannot get pregnant. Im scared becasue i so want more kids. Now i have been having cramping in my lower abdomin and wondering if i have endo. I go to my gyno tomorrow for an examine- i hope it is not endo because i hear it can really affect your fertility.
Maybe you have a cyst or something on your ovary/uterus that is interfering with your fertility so i would suggest you get checked. Also are you keeping track of your BBT? that will tell you if you are ovulating. Let me know what happens. I wish you the best of luck!!!

Asherman's Syndrome
Hi, I couldn't help but react to your post when I read it. I too had infection after a c-section and had some trouble because of it. It was recently discovered thet I have Asherman's Syndrome, but with the doctor's help I'm on the way to recovery and hopefully a speedy pregnancy. The procedures to determine this is pretty invasive but unfortunately it can't be detected through sonars. Good luck in finding out what's wrong and recovery.
