When to see a Fertility Doctor FAQs
Can I check to see if I am OK to wait a few years before having kids?
If you want to have fertility testing but are not ready to start a family yet then we can help. We can now offer women an inexpensive way to find out what their fertility potential is. Through a couple hormonal tests, and a simple ultrasound we can now create a customized fertility assessment. Learn more about our Fertility Snapshot program and see if it makes sense for you.
Do I need a referral from my Ob/gyn or Primary Care MD to see you?
ORH does not require a referral, but your insurance company may require that you have one. Check with your insurance plan if you need a referral or if you have to register with them to get fertility coverage. If you are referred by a physician or other health professional, please let us know. It is helpful to request records of your previous testing and treatment so that we can review them. Many of our patients are referred by friends, coworkers or family members, including former patients of ours who have been successful.
What is the difference between a Fertility specialist and seeing my Ob/Gyn
Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility or REI MDs are sub-specialists: we train in Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/Gyn) then do advanced study of male & female hormonal conditions (endocrinology) and infertility testing and treatment including IVF. REI should be board-certified, except for a few older docs. Ob/Gyn MDs offer prenatal care, delivery, gynecologic care & surgery. Fertility specialists can help you get pregnant, including women with recurrent miscarriage, and look after you in early pregnancy, before transferring your care to an Ob/Gyn when you’re ready to graduate from our program!
How long should we try before seeing a Fertility doctor?
You may consult a fertility physician (Reproductive Endocrinologist or REI) any time if you have difficulty conceiving. You can try for up to a year if you are 34 or under, or for up to 6 months if you are 35-39. See a REI right away if you are 40 or over, if you have irregular cycles, if you have had a previous ectopic pregnancy, chlamydia or Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, if you have had endometriosis or ovarian surgery, or if your partner has known sperm issues.
