If we have already had one child, what can be the cause of infertility in a second pregnancy?

Having had a child previously does not mean that there cannot be infertility problems when seeking a second pregnancy. When this happens we are dealing with a case of sterility or secondary infertility.

The causes can be the same as in primary infertility, so the appropriate male and female fertility tests should be performed to determine which of the aspects mentioned above is causing the problem.
