When to See a North Dakota Fertility Doctor
According to RESOLVE, there are nearly 17,000 people in North Dakota who have been diagnosed with infertility. If you are one of them, you may be wondering what your next step should be.
If you have had trouble trying to conceive, you may want to consider making an appointment at a fertility clinic. Generally, it’s recommended you see a fertility doctor if you have been unable to conceive after trying for one year if you’re under the age of 35 or after six months if you’re over 35.
There is one fertility clinic located in North Dakota called the Sanford Reproductive Medicine Institute, which is located in Fargo.
What is a Fertility Doctor?
A fertility doctor, also called a reproductive endocrinologist, is a physician who has been specially trained to treat disorders of the reproductive system, including infertility, hormonal disorders, or menstrual irregularities.
Fertility doctors first complete a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, and then go on for more specialized training with a two or three year fellowship in reproductive endocrinology. Following the completion of their fellowship, they must pass a written exam.
