What Is a Fertility Doctor?
A fertility doctor is technically known as a reproductive endocrinologist. Fertility doctors must complete a residency in obstetrics/gynecology and then an additional two to three years of specialized training in reproductive endocrinology. Reproductive endocrinologists are either “board certified” or “board eligible.” Most fertility doctors are members of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), a governing that sets the ethical standards in the field of reproductive medicine.
