I CAN’T FALL PREGNANT
I’ve been trying for two years to fall pregnant and have consulted an infertility expert. The doctor says there’s no physical reason why I have not fallen pregnant and that there might be something else prohibiting me from conceiving.
My husband and I are both happy in our marriage and he’s supportive of my endeavour to have a baby.
About four years ago we lost our little daughter in a car accident. She was two years old at the time. I was driving and she was with me in the car when another car crashed into us and she was killed. Could this have something to do with the problem? We loved our daughter very much and still mourn her. Brigitte, email The fact that you lost a young child to death may very well have something to do with your body not allowing you to conceive again.
I would suggest consulting with a psychologist who is trained in hypnotherapy in order to access your subconscious mind and see if this is the reason for you not conceiving.
It might be that subconsciously you’re worried you might forget the daughter who died if you have another baby or it could even be that you’re punishing yourself subconsciously because deep down you feel you’re responsible for the baby’s death, even though it was an accident.
Seeing a properly trained psychologist would be the best way to get to the bottom of the psychological problems that could be affecting your ability to conceive.
