Secondary Unexplained Infertility: Nikki’s Story [SUCCESS]

March 6, 2017

Topics in this episode:

Today’s success story is about a woman named Nikki. Earlier in life, she didn’t think she even wanted to get married, let alone have a family. But all of that changed when she met her husband. After a whirlwind romance, they began trying to conceive and quickly became pregnant with their son. However, when it came time to try for baby #2, she suffered two miscarriages and sought the help of her OB/GYN. She was diagnosed with secondary unexplained infertility, but as a military family, she felt she’d be better off figuring out the answer on her own rather than pursuing a reproductive endocrinologist. Join us to hear how she never lost hope and in fact became more determined than ever after hearing her diagnosis.

  • How infertility has changed Nikki: “It’s made me more aware of the impact of infertility on others. I’ve become more compassionate and understanding about people’s ideas about motherhood, pregnancy, and loss.”
  • Nikki’s advice to herself back then: “It’s always about balance. Stay in balance. When you’re out of balance, you’ll have symptoms that are physical and emotional.”
