What is secondary sterility?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 10/23/2018

Secondary sterility is defined as the inability for a couple to conceive after having been able to achieve pregnancy and give birth to a healthy child previously.

The causes of secondary sterility are age, in the case of females, and poor sperm quality, in the case of males.

For this reason, a number of couples with secondary sterility are referred to egg donation to become parents again.
