Sometimes once you're pregnant and you have a first child, sometimes it's difficult to get pregnant a second time around. And the reasons are very simple; could be that you're a little bit older now. And second, it could be that you're just really tired now. So in the essence, you really need to take a look at your lifestyle. Are you more exhausted now? Are you having enough sleep? Are you eating properly? I could probably make a bet that something is not going exactly right compared to when you tried the first time. So I always recommend to my patient, and it's not very easy, it's not an easy thing to do, but you need to try to find a way to go back to that first time when you were trying, is to have proper sleep as much as you can under circumstances of taking care of a young one, to have if you can some uninterrupted sleep, some times where you can relax, and make sure that you eat properly and try not to eat on the run, trying to prepare a little bit, trying to plan a little bit better. Those are kind of things that I would advise my patient to do because that's going to be very, very helpful. And also don't try to immediately jump into trying to get pregnant. Really, really kind of sit back and really look at it and think about your health. Is your health strong enough at this time? And consult with a reproductive medicine specialist and really evaluate your body. And if your body is not in a good place, let's nurture it, let's make it stronger so that your body is ready for a second try.
