Cheating on Your Fertility Doctor

Sometimes cheating really is OK.

Maybe you’ve been seeing your gynecologist or fertility doctor for several months — or even years — and you’re ready for a second opinion. This can be difficult, but it's OK. A second or even third pair of eyes to review your chart can be very helpful. Your doctor will understand (or may never even know).

Doctors have different skills and strengths, and you may actually benefit from hearing another opinion. You may also realize that you are, indeed, satisfied with your current doctor.

The important thing to remember is that you are not cheating on your fertility doctor — you are just trying to take the best care of yourself. So there's no need to send him or her flowers (unless you really want to)!

Remember, you need to decide for yourself what is best for you.
