Description

What is a fertility doctor? A fertility doctor is an obstetrician/gynecologist who specializes in the practice of fertility.

When to visit

When would you see a fertility doctor? The general belief is if after one year, conception has not occurred, then it may be time to get help from a fertility doctor. But also take into account your age, your partner’s age, your health, the method of birth control you’ve been using up until the point you decided to try and get pregnant, family medical history etc.

What to expect

What would you expect during a visit with a fertility doctor? During your visit with a fertility doctor, you and your partner will be asked to complete paperwork documenting your medical history, insurance information, and medications. You will then spend some time with the physician discussing you history and formulating an infertility treatment plan. Your doctor will review all of the medical information you present at the initial interview. Depending on your doctor’s recommendations, your may start with an ultrasound, blood tests, or urine samples.

How often to visit

How often should you visit a fertility doctor? While the majority of infertility problems can be diagnosed after the first visit, some doctors like to order more blood tests to compare hormone levels. If your doctor suspects a particular problem, like polycystic ovarian syndrome, he/she may want to perform a more involved test, like a vaginal ultrasound. This will allow your doctor to give you a more definitive diagnosis and suggest a better course of treatment for you.
