Five Reasons to See a Fertility Doctor

If you're having trouble getting pregnant, you are probably wondering if it's time to see a doctor who specializes in infertility diagnoses and treatments. Here's a few reasons why you should take that next step.

  1. Fertility doctors know infertility. Physicians who want to become reproductive endocrinologists must attend a two-to-three year fellowship in reproductive endocrinology, pass a written exam, have a two-year practice experience in reproductive endocrinology, and then pass a three-hour oral exam.
  2. You'll stop wasting time. If you are under 35 and have been trying to conceive for a year or more, or if you are over 35 and have been trying for six months, or if you have had two or more miscarriages, it is time to see a fertility doctor.
  3. Your infertility problem may be easy to solve. A fertility work-up will help pinpoint the reason you're not getting pregnant, and your fertility doctor will work with you to map out a fertility treatment plan.
  4. Being proactive about your health and future baby-making will help you feel more in control. This may help to decrease your stress and worry.
