Hi welcome to the forum. I believe that someone posted about having difficulty falling pregnant after they experienced HELLP. I don't think that I've ever read anything about it being linked. However, I know that there is a relationship between insulin resistance, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), diabetes and an increased risk of preeclampsia. Insulin resistance and PCOS can result in infertility (afflicting a close friend of mine right now). It would probably be a good idea to talk to your primary care physican or OB. You can be screened for stuff like this. Secondary infertility (when you've had at least one baby) is hard to deal with because you and everyone else keeps saying .."if you did it once, surely it will happen again". That isn't always true, either because something new has come up, or because you are getting older etc. If you've been trying for a long time I think consulting a doctor might make a lot of sense.
