When to See an Idaho Fertility Doctor
If you’ve been struggling to conceive, you may feel isolated or alone. But that’s not the case—in Idaho, there are over 28,000 people with infertility.
But when should you see an Idaho fertility doctor? If are under the age of 35 and have been trying to conceive without success for one year—or for six months if you are over the age of 35—you may want to consider seeing a fertility doctor. Fertility doctors, also called reproductive endocrinologists, are specially trained to treat issues of the reproductive system that may make pregnancy harder to achieve.
If you are considering seeing a reproductive endocrinologist, there is one fertility clinic located in Boise, Idaho and one fertility doctor who works out of that clinic.
What is a fertility doctor?
Fertility doctors receive special training in the field of infertility medicine. After completing a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, a fertility doctor must also complete a two or three year fellowship in reproductive endocrinology—a specialty which trains them in disorders of the reproductive system, such as hormonal problems, menstrual disorders, sexual dysfunction, and infertility. Once they complete their fellowship, they must pass a written exam.
